I'm thinking that the bailout option is to just backup all the way. The problem seems to be the bow so if the stern leads then maybe there is more control.
Yep, on most* boats there is.
You might feel (and look!) stupid doing it, but you won't be the first, or last, to get in this way.
* = assuming modern, fin, keel with independent rudder.
A bad day on a boat beats a good day in the office
