Yesterday the wind came in much better than forecasted out of the south. When I drove over the causeway I was pleasantly surprised to see the river covered in white caps. I just recently picked up a 101L futura and was itching to try it out. Dino and Ron where rigging when I arrived. Art was on the water and David showed up followed later by Dennis and Tom. I rigged a 7.0 and used the stock fin of 34cm. I sailed for about 45 minutes and could have used a bigger fin. When the gusts came through I was nicely powered and it was good. I tried my weed fin and it seemed to plane up better, but the wind may have been more filled in at that point. The wind was up from 3:00 to 5:00pm and then dropped off gradually.
