Default RE: Start centerboard?

When I have enough depth, I put an old 58cm fin I got with a used board I purchased. It seems to help keep the Start upwind, but the one I have doesn't point very well. I've been trying to convince my wife to try my old Windsurfer Classic. She will be able to head upwind much better on it, but it will be less stable.

Can you point upwind at all with the current setup or is it not even possible? It should be possible, but you shouldn't expect to point like a longboard with a centerboard three times the size of the Start's.
