Planning on next day but at 2:00 predictions went up 3mph for today and down 3 for Wednesday. Got to lake to some whitecaps. After 20 minutes got a wind blast of 18-20 on my meter. Rigged 6.0 and 112L but had way overestimated wind, lucky to get back to shore. The 7.0 and 135L planed up nicely but wind not very consistent for UL. Still, beautiful afternoon to be out. The lake is full and the water was way cleaner that normal. The sails looked clean when I rolled them up compared to mud caked in previous years. They are still working on new beach. The new north dike blocks the wind enough at our usual launch that it is hard to get out. Still, grass rigging, flush toilets, and paved parking, pretty nice!
