Use a compact anchor & line to anchor it just off the beach, or capsize just before the shore & lift/or pull the boat up the beach on its side (less surface area to potentially damage).

Do you really expect a small singlehander to lie, upright, to an anchor? Not even sure a SoSlo would stay upright!! My thought is take the handheld waterproof floating VHF afloat, and enter on that. I have done that somewhere, but really struggling to remember where!! Old age is setting in, I will soon start rambling like GRF!!

James, you could have a point there, so long as the main is dropped. Also a small buoy so that I could leave it domewhere during the race. My uncle uses an old brake disk for his fishing dory as its v rocky where he is.
Jon, at least any scratches would only happen to the deck, not the all important shiny bottom!
One issue with the VHF is finding out the course. Though normally I am nowhere near the front, so can just follow the leader. And I don't think a new boat is going to change that state of affairs.

Re: lie upright - depends on the boat and conditions, I think undoing the clew so the boom wasn't directly attached to the sail would help (if the main can't be lowered). It's something I do on my 4000 when coming ashore, to help stablise it (a boat that inherently wants to fall over when not moving). Guess it would be something you would have to try beforehand.

Actually a further thought re: the buoy suggestion - anchor the boat, capsize it, tie the buoy to the top of the mast to stop it inverting, sign on, return, attach the buoy to the anchor line, right the boat and sail off lol

dont undo the boom! your sail will die very quickly! if you leave sail up, but enought kicker and oputhaul on to stop flogging, plenty of singlehanders will lie fine with a sail up jon : lasers, solos, phantoms, etc!

We have been using something like this: https://www.segelservice.com/html/artnr/183100522.html
But then again our hull wasn't shiny anymore anyway.
