Well I don't use an anemometer but I also try to delay rigging until my perception is confirmed. When balancing between two sails, the bigger one is most often the best choice on a lake. Different story by the sea where it depends on many factors (onshore/offshore...) and evaluating the wind speed can be quite difficult.
