Wouldn't go to starboard

I'm still a noobie, keep that in mind. The wife and I are out in our Islander 28, we are sailing closehauled, winds 15-20 from the southwest our starboard, wave train is 4-5ft, just past ebb tide. We go to turn starboard to go back the same way we came and the boat fights me wants to continue to port even with the rudder hard over (wheel steering). We have not experienced that before and I am wondering what factors were at work to cause that?
