Ratio of Sand to Compost?

I want to plant a lot more this year so will have to use containers. I have already used all my homemade compost on my raised beds so have purchased peat free compost for the containers. I remember my Grandad used to do container planting and would mix in sharp sand, but have no idea on ratios. A quick google brings up anything from 50/50 to 70/30. Do you guys have any preference/guidance about what works best for you. I will be growing carrots, cucumbers, tomatoes, peas, leeks and potatoes.
