I agree with me O'Toole. I've experienced the exact same situation (different outcome) with a 270 metre container ship. While leaving the bitter lakes, nort bound either the pilot or wind ( I cannot remember exactly) got us to close to our ps bank. Pilot ordered more rudder to SB and more power to propulsion. It had no effect the vessel stay "glued" to the ps bank. At one moment it was decide to reduce power to dead slow resulting the vessel rapidly veering to SB. Only by quick reaction of bridge crew (Ps rudder and more power) we could get the vessel back on track in time. If I review the track I would say this could have happen to the Ever Given.

Looking at that, it seems to me a classic bank effect situation. Maybe the wind started a swing to port leading to a shear to starboard and into the bank.
