Just curious, how long is the season you can keep your boat in the water in the Northern Chesapeake?

The answer depends on the intestinal fortitude of the owner.

I sail year round on the Chesapeake although admittedly less often in August (hot and no wind) and February (cold). We've had some great weekend sails in December and January when a warm front comes through.

Here's your slip :)

I started my love affair with sailing while in South Florida but after I graduated school there was no work for me there so I sold my Potter 15 small sailboat and had to move to the Delaware Valley/Chester County to work. After my initial bummer wore off, I realized that I am only 50 miles north of Havre de Grace in Chester County, Pa. and decided my sail days were not done.
I am looking at another boat to buy. And I have to keep it in somewhere. I am looking at a Nonesuch or a Cape Dory or something along those lines 30 foot.
But, no one likes to spend more than necessary for a slip so I really just need somewhere to keep her and then drive down to sail. So, it doesn't have to be a full-service marina, just somewhere basic.
Distance from home-wise....I am 50 miles north of Havre de Grace and I guess 90 minutes is no biggie. 2 hours south? I don't know...maybe if it is worth it as far as cheaper slips.
So, what do you think? I am going to take some sailing lessons in Havre de Grace in October to get 'unrusty' and learn on the 30 footer since I had a 15 footer before. Anyway, any feedback would be appreciated now that you have more specifics. Thanks so much!
I hope I don't violate any rules here when I tell you that I have a 32' slip for rent in Bowley's marina (bowleysmarina.com) in Middle River. Bowleys is a condo marina, meaning each slip belongs to a member and some members rent them out (I bought two slips and use the rent from one of them to help pay the management dues for the other one, where I keep my own boat, also a 32'). The rent is 2200.- for the year (12 months). This is in the general range for that area but somewhat lower than most slips in full-service marinas (which Bowleys definitely is). I can do that because I rent directly, it would be higher going through the marina.

BTW, the marina is full of people from your part of the world, nearly everybody is from Pennsylvania. Middle River is easy to get to, go down either I-83 or I-95, depending where you live, the Baltimore beltway then gets you within 5 minutes of the marina gate.

We have a 30' boat in a 40' slip at White Rocks Marina on Rock Creek in the Patapsco. It's costing me about $1900 / yr. Deep water, wide fairways, great sailing minutes from the slip. Lots of good weekend destinations.

That is pretty good deal. How far from Maryland YC?

For what you're looking for I would recommend you check out Old Bay Marina and Bodkin Marina (not to be confused with Bodkin Yacht Club). I know Bodkin Marina as I kept our boat there one season. The owner Charlie is a pretty decent fella. Not much there though, but it is certainly protected as its all the way back the creek.

The advantage of Middle River is you don't have to go over the bridge or through the tunnels, and there may be more marinas on Middle River than any other of its size on the bay. Not much up the Gunpowder or Bush River for a sailboat.

One note about White Rocks, and not meant to offend anyone, but it is not very protected in a northern blow IMO, hence the rates. Saw them lose two or three boats during the last tropical storm that came through here a few years ago. I suppose if you get your boat pulled in time its a none issue, but .

I'm at Old Bay Marina and have been happy there though it's definitely a no frills working yard kind of place. The owner is very laid back and they don't mind you doing all of your own work. It has great access to the mouth of the Patapsco. Also right up the road from Old Bay is Young's Boat Yard which a lot of people swear by. I wouldn't try getting into any marina at Sparrows Point if your draft is over 5 feet. I also believe Old Bay was 100% full this summer, probably because it is so reasonable.

The Middle River area has several nice marinas but a lot of them have trade-offs in terms of protectedness, proximity to Martin State Airport (plane noise), and amount of motoring in and out of the slip to good sailing grounds. Middle River also is farther from the prime cruising destinations.
