140 - Nothing but rain forecast but it did come up by surprise and no rain.  Tried the 2006 FSW and hoping Fritz wants to sell it.  It worked very well with mostly less than full power, although it takes a little more to plane it is a little more turny than the 2005 JP 91 FWS  that is close getting retirement after 600 days because 25% of the nose bottom had to be repaired due to the core styrofoam splitting rail to rail.  Tacks were BAF between the launch and SI#2 with in slight chop.  Missed first jibe and fast tack but otherwise had enough power to make all the rest of the  transitions.  Absolutely have no interest in any of the current 2010 boards as this one fits very well.
