Noreault's method works if you have a really long stern line.

I've done it the following way several times with minimal assistance from the admiral. Set your anchor. Prepare a stern line, one end tied off to a rear cleat, the other end piled in your dink. Back towards shore while paying out additional anchor rode so you can get close to the shore you want to stern tie to. When you're close, tie off the anchor line, jump in your dinghy with the boat still idling in reverse to hold the stern close to your shore anchor point. Depending on the amount of prop walk, you may have time to get to shore soon enough to tie off the stern line before your boat walks away from your anchor point. If you're prop walk is severe, anchor out in the middle and leave the shore ties to the double handed boats.
