Well obviously board and sail were too big and there's little you can do against that. However a few tricks may help you surviving and save the day. Smaller fin, lower boom and/or longer lines to "seat" more in the harness, max downhaul, more outhaul but not to the point where the sail becomes unstable... Mast track forward sounds a bit counter-intuitive but it will remove some pressure from the fin. Along with lower boom it will shift your bodyweight towards the front strap, help you pushing the board downwind. Longer lines keep you away from the boom but you may not like this stance. Try a few combinations. If none of them works then it's time to go home and have a beer.
