Is there some limitation to using your sails...plus at least part of the swing keel down or the boat won't go where you point it. I routinely sail my 36 onto and off my mooring, it adds to the fun and helps sharpen your boat handling skills, especially singlehanded.

Put the main up and luff the main, wait until the boat swings to one side, drop off and trim in and you should be underway.
