I concur with the the responses here. New England is a damn great place to sail. My dad had a place on the Chesapeake and in August it was miserably hot and no/low wind.
New England does have it's "Low Wind Days" but at some point in the day, there will be wind either from an on-shore or off-shore breeze. Don't really get them in the Chesapeake, especially mid and northern part.
My boat is in Marblehead, MA and it is a great and convenient location. With the right winds, I can go to Provincetown, Plymouth/Sagamore, Portsmouth, NH, Newburyport, MA, Boston, etc. in a day. Out and back day trips are always different beause of the wind direction. Sometimes we go in the direction up to Cape Anne, sometimes in the direction of Boston.
If you liked my advice/response, give me some rep points. If you didn't......well what do you expect, it was free.
