What to Know About Sailing in the Chesapeake Bay

An accomplished registered nurse with over two decades of experience, Emerson Curley is a registered cardiovascular interventional specialist who has served as a geriatric care manager and nurse in several medical institutions throughout his career. Outside of work, Emerson Curley enjoys sailing on the Chesapeake Bay.

The Chesapeake Bay, with almost 12,000 miles of shoreline, is the longest bay in North America and fed by five major rivers. As the nation’s largest estuary, the bay offers an unforgettable cruise which is characterized by glistening water, plenty of wind, and sunshine.

To enjoy the Chesapeake Bay, you should plan your schedule and be realistic about your experience. Do not try to see everything as you’ll end up missing a lot given the large size of the bay. The best option is to sail slowly in a leisurely way and allow the Bay to determine your pace, stimulate interest, and allow you to visit more attractions as well as suggested stops.

Be flexible when you begin the cruise and be willing to accommodate changes in your trip. The best time to go sailing on the Chesapeake Bay is during either spring or fall. It is not advisable to visit during the summer when it’s hot and humid. Spring is a great time as it is associated with beautiful blooms while the foliage during fall is dazzling. The most ideal months to visit the Chesapeake Bay are late April to May and from September to mid-October.
