Situation as I read it above:

While on a Port reach with the Assym and the wind at about 210* you would steer to Starboard (fall off) if she was headed for a broach. You could also ease the sheet while falling off to change the angle of attack and dump power out the Leech because the way an Assym works as opposed to a Symmetrical chute. You other folks feel free to chime in here....
