Name that Rigging

I have a Santana 22 with a sheave box built into the forward side of the mast about half way up to the mast head. A halyard runs up the mast, into the sheave box, back down the mast on the inside, out the base of the mast on the starboard side and back to the cockpit by way of a block at the base of the mast.

This is the only halyard of four on this boat that does not run to the mast head.

Any help with identifying intended use would be greatly appreciated.

That should be the upper support line for spinnaker pole

Agreed ....AKA the "pole lift" or 'uphaul". If you still have the spinnaker gear, there should also be a 'downhaul' rigged on deck, a track or a ring on the front of the mast down low, and, of course, the pole itself.

Thank you both for your help.

also known as just the "topping lift".

(yes, there's one on the boom too, but it never gets adjusted underway, or ever really, so no chance of confusion)

Under spinny, tactician/trimmer will usually just say, "pole up (down) a little", or similar.
