Re: Centerboard position - keel/centerboard Tartan 37 upwind
I just google'd centerboard position and the articles stated the farther forward the boat is the more the boat is forced to head up. So the conclusion was if you are in heavy wind which is creating weather helm, you want less board). If the boat is falling off wind (lee helm) you want more CB.
I'm referring to only upwind sailing here. Off wind the board comes up. I have been able to balance my boat withe CB so that I don't have touch the wheel when I get her balanced.
