Sailing Efficiency Ratings????
I was just curious...is there any reference that tells you in X amount of wind with X amount of sail area you should be able to attain X speed? I know it will vary depending on boat and current, but something in general?
The reason I ask is I was sailing with my 155 and it was about 8-9 knots of wind and I was at 4.5 knots of boat speed...I was happy, then I wondered...is that actually good??? What if I should be able to do 5.5 knots with that sail area? Just wanted to see how efficiently I sail my boat! Also would be cool to see what other boats sail in the same wind/water conditions.
