In recent races at Canberra the wind has been light-moderate 6-12 knots. There has been a 14ft Windrush and a similar Nacra sailing recently so it has given me something to gauge my performance in the Weta against. The Weta definitely does better upwind in these conditions. I just cannot find a way to get any comparative speed happening downwind.

All the cats do is point to the mark and wait! In sub-planning conditions the Weta is around Laser performance downwind. Any clues for downwind performance in these conditions?
