North End of Detroit River

Looking to launch just south of Lake St Clair , at St. jean Street launch, what kind of west wind do i need to cruise up the current on the North side of Belle Isle? Taking the Laser to explore before I bring out the Lightning.
I plan on jibing east up through the mouth of the river and then cruising a bit up the shoreline in Lake St.Clair.
Any Advice?

The wind often funnels down the river. So heading upstream and upwind may be problematic.
Out at the mouth the wind might be less than 5k but at Belle it will be 12k maybe more.
