Playing currents will be crucial to your progress, no matter how it goes.
To take HS's point a bit further: consider anchoring in the LI Sound if/when the wind dies and the current is against you. Staying in one place is preferable to going in the wrong direction and the current will eventually change or the wind will pipe up.

Have fun.
