I think, if your main sailing surface is a lake, then you have inconsistent or fluctuating winds, especially in the summer when you said you have 6-12 knots. Please think again about long raceboards. With a long raceboard it's "plane or cruise" not "plane or schlogg." With inconsistent winds under 12 knots you can win many of those drag races as your opponents fall off a plane into schlogging while you keep on cruising on a long raceboard. And you'll have more fun because your summer sessions will avoid the frustration of schlogging.
