138 - Weak cold front hit about midnight and blew until sunrise before tapering off a bit.  Got started about an hour later than planned and had 2 hours on 4.7 and 1 1/2 hours on 5.8.  Tack was mostly straight out to the mudflats  and back to the launch in fairly flat water.  In the first session worked upwind steadily finally going into the boat ramp and out to the North Cabins just as the wind dropped a notch so the downwind return was disappointing.  Went to the KRS once in each session, the massive amount of weeds definitely required a real weed fin today.  Larry was the only other sailor in the first session then Fritz joined us for the second session.  Full time planing in both sessions but neither were fully powered.  That's probably the last wind for several days, glad to get another day, this September may not end as an average one and likely be the 4th worse.
