How do I moor in open water?

I have a 30 ft wooden ketch moored to a jetty. At the front it''s secured by the anchor and a chain to another permanent anchor. At the back I have two ropes tying it to the jetty. (Hey, I''m a beginner so I can say "front" and "back" :-)) But I''ve got to move it away from the jetty into open water. How do I moor it? I think I should still use the same arrangement at the front, but what about the back?
