Sailing 201 Quiz

You've run aground in mud on a point. How do you get off quickly?

No wind, can't use the engine, can't get in the water to swim an anchor or go ashore, can't call or accept help, can't wait for the tide, no current, no power boat wakes to rock you off.

Your tools
Less than 1kt wind, main, genoa, asymmetrical spinnaker, danforth anchor & rode, 6 sets of (working) hands.

You have to do something, what is it and in what order?
