Re: sailing with CB up?

Yes, you should be able to sail with the center board up. In fact, this is preferred for downwind or deep reaching since having the board up will lessen your wetted surface area.

Putting the boad down will help the boat point and track better without walking sideways. It may also change the center of gravity on the boat is you've got a weighted board.
