Re: Centerboard position - keel/centerboard Tartan 37 upwind

Another question that comes to mind: As I understand it, moving the centerboard up and down does change the position of the draft (perhaps this is the wrong term, I meant the balance) of the boat, doesn't it? Moving that back and forth depending on the position of the centerboard can affect the boat's ability to point, right? Is this offset by the decreased drag?
