I would have suggested heading north to Annapolis MD or Newport RI. Only problem is your 6th requirement, you may have to rent a car.
Down south can be hot and calm in the big summer high pressure areas. Mid Atlantic on up to New England would be better, in August.

What's wrong with Florida? It won't be cold for long. And you can buy a sailing dinghy for the cost of the trip to Rio.

Hello to everybody:
A "worlwide question" to everybody.
Which is the best or a nice place to learn to sail in august?
My request are:
1) Go in August
2) Sailing dinghy (laser for example)
3) Professional certified schools
4) Possibility to rent dinghy also for solo sailing
5) Located in a nice area where you can enjoy the sea and the city
6) Easy to reach without having a car.
Maybe Rio de Janeiro? South America?
Sorry to everybody but the matter is very hard for me.
I'm in Florida now, i arrived on the first day of FEB and i fount the coldest florida spring since 1977. Bad and variable weather and so very bad sailing.
I saved my money every weekend for 18 months in order to be here and now that dream became true a so bad weather.
