Re: Chartering in the Chesapeake in late June/ early July
For a short cruise, I second the motion for the Annapolis, Baltimore, St. Michaels area - much more to see in shorter distances.
Wind is typically light, from the south, southeast, southwest with a Bermuda high parked offshore during those months, but you will likely experience increasing winds after noon as the land masses heat up, then dying down at sunset, with the possibility of late afternnon/evening thunderstorms. Wind picks up again several hours after sunset. Plan on doing some motoring if you need to put miles under the keel in any direction.
