I gather you mean ingress of water when the boat is heeling. You could run a vent line out through the transom I guess. That would work ok except possibly with a following breeze, just keep it an adequate amount above the waterline.
Why are you locating the holding tank so far from the head? At least I assume it's farther than necessary.
