Welcome to Learning to Sail

We are new to sailing but not to the water. We recently purchased an older sailboat, which we are refitting. Our boat has a full keel, and a removable centerboard which was laying in the V-berth. Do we really need to have the centerboard permanently installed? Is it really necessary if we are not going to be racing? What is its real purpose? Is it just for performance? Thank you
