thanks everyone for the replies so far!

If it comes out of the top of the mast from a sheave next to the jib halyard it very well may be a second jib halyard. It's fairly common to have this set up.

The spinnaker halyard will probably be external and may lead to a block just forward of the forestay.

Gotta camera with a zoom? Post a pic?
