Marlinspike is on a distinguished road
Allow me to underscore...

Knotalaud did sat "fall off" not "head up a bit". Heading up to avoid a broach is tantamount to takint a high speed turn arounf a corner in a car where the road is banked the wrong way. You would be helping a broach to happem, versus falling off, which would arrest the tendancy to broach.

I know... against all natural tendencies when on a close reach, which is to head up...
