Raise your main sail with a reef in it. Keep it flat and sheeted in tight. Get up on the bow, sit down and wedge your feet in good, as the the boat sail's up on the anchor pull in the chain, when it's about to tack, take a turn, when it slack's pull some more. One link at a time, you'll get it up. Patience!!!
