Denise - I'm from the Philly area and know your cruising area well. Since moving to VA in 1987 and sailing the Northern Bay for a year and the Mid-Bay for 22 years we've settled into 3 distinct seasons.

Spring - MAr/Apr/May/June - work on boat and get decent sailing through the end of June.
Summer - July/Aug - The Bay wind machine is OFF, so mostly day sails and no anchoring out. If we stay on board, the A/C is on. Exception is Gov Cup at the beginning of Aug which is HOT when we usually finish (1400-ish)
Fall - Sept through mid-Nov. The Bay wind machine is ON. Delightful and magical.

On our last boat, we once sailed down the Rapphannock River on July 4th in 100+ heat. Not fun... then it thunderstormed and we had to stay in an un-airconditioned, steamy cabin. The heat and no wind makes spending the day motoring (HOT cabin!) a real downer so I use July and August for maintenance of the engine and teak, etc; stuff that I don't get to in the spring. I don't mind being hot during the day, but want to sleep at night.

I HAVE A 1977 P30 CALLED BELLADONNA, WE HAD THE BOOM RAISED AND GAVE UP A LITTLE SAIL AREA FOR A REALLY NICE BIMINI. AT THE SAME TIME WE ADDED BEHIND THE MAST ROLLER FURLING. ALMOST NO DIFFERENCE IN SPEED, WE USE THE MAIN A LOT MORE AND WE DON'T GET HOT. THE BIMINI ALSO EXTENDS A LITTLE OVER THE ENTRANCE TO THE CABIN SO THE BOAT CAN STAY OPEN IN LIGHT RAIN.

A bimini is a lifesaver on Victoria. Makes the days bearable. If I could get my Gov Cup crew to let me use it during the race that would be great. But it's not manly and they make me keep it furled. I think that's payback for me not letting them drink alcohol during the race.

My wife (also fair skin) like the shade of the dodger on our P30, except it blocks the breeze. Denise, make certain you have plenty of cold water available to drink (not soda or beer) and drink it *before* you're completely parched. Heat exhaustion is nothing to mess around with and can quickly get much worse. If you have a dodger up, make sure you open the window to get some air into the cockpit. One of my favorite things about sailing is that out on the sound, it's often 10 degrees cooler than on land -- no place I'd rather be when it's a real scorcher (provided there's a breeze...).

A little help

Apply cloths soaked with cold water to back of neck, as water evaporates it should help cool you down. Also can wrap same around wrists, cool the blood and it circulates helping cool body.

Tampa Bay is having the Tall Ships in mid-august.
Thinking of going down.
Wondering about the heat and humidity.
Also curious about pop up storms.

Would charter some sort of boat for day sails.

Will conditions be tolerable in mid-July?

I snowed again this morning (6/14/2010) around my place in the high country of Colorado. Florida is looking good.
