Default 6.5 sail for gusty lake sailing

Hi Roger,

My 2nd hand 6.3 Gun X-race sail, that was held together with copious amounts for tape and happy thoughs, had a minor catastrophe this weekend and I have decided to pass it on to some lucky soul more desperate than myself. I had decided to replace it with a 2006 6.5 retro. But my local friendly sailors have been working on me telling me you "need" a camed sail for gusty lake conditions to make the most of the wind here abouts. I have an 2006 11.0 retro that I love. Could it be that I just don't know what I'm missing?

What do you think should I go with my first instinct and get the retro or do you have other suggestions. I weight 215 lbs so I want oodles of low end power to heave me up onto a plain, and it needs to be very robust (x-ply) and easy to rig correctly. I'll be rigging it on an x-9 460 mast, that was a NP prototype.
