What is good speed to make...

1981 US Yachts 27

I was out yesterday in a nice 5-10Kt breeze and was only making around 5.5kt SOG on the gps. The actual knotmeter on this boat is long dead so my actual speed with current is unknown. I have had this boat up to 7kts but no more.

My question is:
What is good speed to make? As some of you may have picked up my experience was years ago on small boats so I have no point of reference.
