According to Chuck Allen, Fusion 15, A Fast Dinghy for All Ages this is supposed to be the fun part.
Part of having fun means not being afraid to capsize. While the Fusion 15 has good stability, I was in charge of the "flip test" and can report the boat is easy to right and reenter through the open transom, and the water drains quickly out the stern.
It sounds like once you have capsized, it is difficult to reach centerboard from the water. All I can suggest is that as you capsize you walk over on to the centerboard. Or, if you are not alone, perhaps your crew can lift up the top of the mast enough for you to reach the centerboard.

Always try to right the a capsize with the bow pointed into the wind, or from standing on the windward side.
