I haven't left the bay yet and don't know if I will any time soon in my current boat, but it's nice to know I have the option

I agree that a charter would likely be entirely different.

Re: Chesapeake charter early August?

If I was chartering in the Chessapeake in early August, it would be a stinkpot with a big ass AC and a great swim platform. When I sailed there I was very stupid and tried to sail in the mornings ostensibly to beat the heat, but without wind it was just awful, to the point my wife started going to church again, just to avoid sailing.
Ye Gads, how awful was that?

I just called BoatUS insurance to check up on this and my policy would increase about 20% for the increased area coverage you mentioned. When I spoke with them they said that only costs the same if the boat insured is trailered and is a lot smaller than 30 ft.

Could you should check again on yours. I dont want to pay anymore than I have to and I dont want them to misinform me either.

Re: Chesapeake charter early August?

I'd recommend chartering a boat with A/C and planning to dock! Better yet, charter a boat out of Newport.

Re: Chesapeake charter early August?

If I had my druthers, I'd charter in the Pacific Northwest that time of year. Crytsal clear skies, warm days, cool evenings...

The Chesapeake is hit or miss in early August. Despite the claims, I've found plenty of wind in August. It's just not dependable. Gov Cup (1st weekend of Aug) has been an upwind slog for the past two years in 15-25 knot south winds. Three years ago, we enough wind to finish the race. For the past three years, Pirate's Weekend (2nd weekend in Aug at Rock Hall) has seen at least one serious low move thru the area. We've had very boisterous conditions either going or returning on at least one day (Fri- Mon) around that weekend.

You can expect wind, but you can't count on it. What you can count on is hot. Except for the passing front/low/storm, you can figure on high 80s to low 100s and plenty of humidity.

Maine is nice in that time of year. Much of Casco Bay or Penobscot Bay are sheltered from ocean swells if that is a concern.

I took out my policy in September 2012, so maybe they've changed since then. All I know is that the intial policy they sent me said Chesapeake Bay. After I called, they sent me a revised policy that clearly says "U.S. and Canada coastal and inland." The premiums stayed exactly the same. I know that for sure since I had already paid them and I did not have to pay any more. But, maybe this has all changed or I just got lucky.

There are a few Catalina owners (the treasurer of the C25 site, for one) who live in that area and who can probably give you some good guidance.

As for the Delaware, if we buy the boat we're looking at, I'll (hopefully) be moving her through Delaware Bay in a few weeks. If you'd like to come along for that part of the trip, you are welcome. It will be cold, and probably a little wet, and the boat is a little heavier (11,000 lbs), but at least you'll get a feel for what the bay is like.
If west coast airfare won't blow the budget how about the San Juan's? The photo's I see from out there always inspire me to want to someday sail there.

Re: Chesapeake charter early August?

I haven't been there, so I can't speak to the San Juans. You might want to ask that as a separate question, because the California SN crew may not read this thread.

FYI, my BoatUS policy also says "US and Canada Coastal and Inland Waters" It's a brand new renewal effective this month. It has had the same wording the past 2 years.
