I bought a Scot last fall after having sailed only keel boats in the past. My Scot quickly became the most fun boat I've owned. My question deals with how to maximize the use of the centerboard. I'd like some of your rules-of-thumb/generalizations regarding control vs drag for the various points of sail and wind conditions. That's a pretty general question, and there are infinite combinations, but I'm merely looking for general guidelines. Thanks.
