Pearson 30 reverse problem

Purchased a Pearson 30 (hull # 917 on 9/17/00)When pulling from the slip for the first time I reversed the engine and gave it a burst on the throttle. Whoooo The tiller was pulled from my hands and it shot around until it faced the stern of the boat. It did take me to the deck! Did I do some thing wrong, or is this a "Pearson thing" ?
