weather cocking + blowing out to sea

ok - here i am....paddling in the chop, the wind is blowing one way, i'm trying to go the other... i try leaning the boat one way - still blown off coarse. i try leaning the other still blown off coarse. frustrated and getting tired. paddle one side, and shorten my paddle on the down wind side. my upwind arm is about to fall off... the chop is huge - arggh!
of coarse my boat has no rudder...
what now.....besides being blown out to sea
