What do you expect?
So often on here and other forums I hear the question; how long from X to X?
For those of us who had our boats a season or two, the answer is pretty simple.
So, on a good day, working sails only, what % of the wind speed would you expect to make, up to around 20/25 knots on a beam reach to a hard beat?
I guess it sounds an odd question, but I'm always trying to increase my performance in relation to wind speed.
