    centerboard vs. keel, what to expect!

    for the past three seasons, i have been racing aboard a 27 ft keelboat. i have gotten plenty of time at the helm in that boat as well as a 25 footer. I was wondering what differences i would experience when sailing a 14 ft centerboard boat. any insight would be much appreciated!
