Backing Up a Pearson 323

Okay, okay. I know there''s a trick to this... I have a Pearson 323, w/inboard gas Atomic 4. I''m having the darndest time backing into the slip. Last time I tried, I circled 5 times - either overshooting or stopping too short. (Comical sight, too.) The stern seems to want to pull to port as I''m making way astern and this is complicated further because my slip is on the starboard side as I enter the marina. Know any "tricks?" Or is it all skill? I really hate to tie up, bow to. THANKS!
