Is the halyared from the sheave fed through the block? If do we get the halyard that runs up the mast and out through the sheave into the block? This sounds like a stupid question but we are newcomers to this wonderful sport.
If you have internal hallyards you should have (or make) an opening in front of the mast aproximatly 1m (3 feet down the mast).

So the hallyard go into the mast at (or near) the bottom of the mast, inside the mast, exiting the mast at the opening close to the top, through the block at the top down to the deck (this end attaches to the sail)

Picture is better
