Re: What do you expect?
I don't use percentages of wind speed because it doesn't work for my boat
As it's quite light it will get close to hull speed easily. Then I keep it there as the wind increases by reefing.
Planning I use 2 speeds 5.5 knots and 6 knots and I find I am a little in front of that every day. Especially during passages I sail conservatively... The last thing I want us breakages. So if I am near hull speed I will back off.
