105 - Surprise wind today, peaked earlier than forecast but got too late so it was a frustrating start.  Tried 4.7 for an hour but barely planeable and with lots of west direction it was out and back to the IWC then it dropped and had to walk back from the north end.  It went much more south, so rigged 5.8 and it blew fairly nice the rest of the afternoon.  BAF to SI#1 consistently planing with small holes and medium power.  Marked a 20' long major submerged hazard near the sandbar between the spoils, still need to mark two more that are similar, on the mudflats and near the spoil across the boat ramp channel.  Sorta scary, had near misses with all ot them this year having sailed around them many times for years without knowing they existed and fortunately with no mishap.  Two sessions with lunch break in between and maybe a dozen sailing.  Hoping for another one tomorrow but that looks like it for the rest of the week.
