Italian term or phrase: il vento che ha soffiato in poppa
Non so se in inglese posso renderlo letteralmente ed avere lo stesso significato di tendenza positiva

i fatturati da capogiro che si sono moltiplicati in breve tempo, causa anche il vento che ha soffiato in poppa fino ai primi mesi del 2008

sailed before the wind

io girerei un po' la frase dicendo: "i fatturati da capogiro che si sono moltiplicati in breve tempo have been obtained thanks to the fact that the company sailed before the wind till ..." ecc
il modo di dire in inglese c'è ed ha lo stesso significato di quello in italiano. io ho messo come soggetto "the company", vedi tu se poi va bene per il tuo contesto.
spero di averti aiutato.
