You bought a sloop rig...if you properly rigged a second forestay, it'd still be a sloop, a sloop with two forestays, but not a cutter.
Forgetaboutit. The C&C 30 came equipped with a telephone-pole style mast, not much need for a babystay, seems unlikely a pO would install one. It's very surprising a rigger or a half-aware PO would leave an un-used wire connected to the top of the mast, maybe you should have someone with a little experience come by and take a look at it, no offense intended.
Congrats on buying a sweet boat.
Certified...in several regards...
