Suggestions for best method for leaving my slip would be appreciated.
I'd suggest going into the slip stern first in those conditions if your vessel backs to port. That certainly solves the leaving bit and backing in gives you much more control of the boat until you can get a spring line on her.
As for non docking considerations, some things must take priority over those and safely entering and leaving the slip would be one of those, IMO. Sorry, hun.
