Re: Sailing 201 Quiz

IF assistance is available - and you don't have a wing keel - here is what we did one day when inattention got us stuck:

Attach the main halyard to the assisting vessel with as much slack as possible to minimize upward tension on that vessel, and have it motor out abeam of you. This will pul the boat over, reduce draft, and permit you to motor backward to safety. Without an engine? possibly backwind the jib?
