Tracking and weathercocking are two different characteristics. Without a skeg the Northbay tracks and weathercocks well. With a skeg it tracks well and the weathercocking is controllable. "tracking" is resistance to turning, skegs are used to balance a tendency to turn up into the wind while paddling forward, two different things.
