Centerboard Position

The actual point I have been unsuccesfully trying to make is that in heavy weather it is critical to use only enough board to maintain your course so that when you are hit with a big gust, or wave, your boat will slide sideways helping to prevent a capsize. I have learned this sailing a Lightning in sustained winds up to 40 with gusts to 50. I simply hope to help someone make the correct decision in heavy weather instead of the more obvious wrong decision.
