Thank you Denise that is what I was trying to describe.

To the OP it sounds like you have a good chance of getting back on board, I could mantleshelf at 16 but now at 66 and with a damaged shoulder there is no way I can, that is why I installed a set of steps and a pull down extending ladder on the stern. .

Re the release of your clip please do not take this for granted. Most clips supplied on sailing harnesses do not allow release under tension. You have to get some slack before you can disconnect. This may not be possible if you are being towed alongside.
