I have to concur with all the votes for southern Chesapeake Bay. You have marketable skills for the area and can locate to some of the more rural bay areas. Marinas down there are really very reasonable, they are open year round, and you can sail twelve months a year. The Chesapeake, in my opinion, would be better than the Carolinas, since it's a little more sheltered, yet still has good winds and space for sailing.
