You might want to find out how flexible scheduling your time on the boat is. The Chesapeake Bay in July and August can be hotter than hell and no wind. It would not be very fun if it's your turn on the boat and it's 95 and no wind

That's why I don't like sailing on the 'peake. Buzzards Bay usually has very reliable southwest winds during the summer. Beats the fluky air of the Chesapeake, which is basically landlocked, at least up by Annapolis. Sailing on it is much like sailing on a lake... Down the southern end of the Chesapeake is much better sailing.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

I've been out on the Bay when it's been over 100 with a steady 15-knot wind all day. May be the exception, but this past summer my wife and I sailed on many a warm day with plenty of wind. I am retired, so I am able to take advantage of warm breezy days during the week.
