The easiest way to exit is to back out of the slip and stop the boat. Let the wind push the bow to starboad. If needed to hold boat in the fairway, use some forward with hard right rudder. As the boat turns close to 90%, exit out the fairway in reverse. In my boat standing in front of the wheel, facing aft, makes steering in reverse more natural.

Certified...in several regards...
