Pull up to the ball at the stern side gate, slip the free end of a mooring line through the ring and then through the eye of the line. Pull in the line. As the boat starts to fall back downwind, move the line quickly to the bow. If there is heavy weather coming or if we will be there a while, we will add a 2nd line via dinghy with the loop end interlocked with the ring.
