123-  Lucky it was a dawn patroi, actually got started about 1/2 hour after the first light target and sure enough it dropped below 20 mph by 10am. First session was non-stop 2 1/4 hours shore to shore almost always planing, not fully powered all lhe time but it was still good cruising mostly solo between the IWC and KRS.  Worked upwind enough to sail from the KRS upwind of the North Cabins to the boat ramp then made then several downwind tacks back  to the launch.  Lots of weeds in the North Bay but some nice swells made it easy to avoid the larger weedbergs.  Rigged the 6.2 for about an hour long second  session but it was mostly slow planing and some fairly big lulls except for 7.0+ sails.  Only Cryer and Steve during peak wind time then another dozen or so camper finally hit the water.
