Haul in 20 to 30 feet of your rode, attach a long line then let the rode back out and use the attached line to bring the rode towards midship. The boat will change angle to the wind/current. When in a good riding position cleat the attached line.

If the wind current is strong you may have to cleat the attached line before you let the rode out, or pull on the attached line as you are letting the rode out.

At times I have had to use the motor give me enough slack to cleat the attached line where I wanted it.

Because of the force of the wind/current, you will likely have to use the horns of your cleat to hold the attached line until it is cleated secure.
