That particular boat will only get maybe 5.9 - 6.0 knots. Just because the water was calm on the surface didn't mean that you were running against a ebbing tide. Other factors include how heavily the boat was loaded with gear and weight of all persons. My C-27 when not loaded and just me could pull almost 6 knots, but loaded down with gear (BBQs and stocked fridge, and other comforts) 5 knots was the norm and on a good day 5.2 (hull was clean).

So many other factors to consider, congrats as well.
