Re: Sailing 201 Quiz

I'm thinking you need to heel her and kedge her off, no wind to assist. Put the assym in the water with head on halyard, clews made fast to shoreward rail. Toss anchor to seaward side, or swing it out on boom and drop with a slpknot or quick release. Tense rode to a winch, then winch on spin halyard to heel her toward shore ( a lot) and roll keel into deeper water. Lighten cargo and water tanks if necessary, and kedge off.
