113 - Started blowing early with nothing forecast, finally went out anyway just in case.  Slogged quite a bit at first including going down a few times in deep water and there was barely enough to water start.  Stayed with the occasional short gusts for awhile finally making it up to Lookout Point and SI#1. The wind filled in a little more and made it up to SI#2 then BAF to PINS.  Sailed across the sandbar between the spoils and BAF a short way across the IWC at the high markers.  Finally having consistent planing and more power when an out of gas boater flagged me down.  Made a few longer downwind runs back to try and find help.  Didn't take long and the only other boat out stopped to help.  Spent last hour practicing ABK sail work on the Techno 293 on the sandbar.
