June Windjamming Weather


June begins with highs in the upper 50's to 60 degrees and ends with highs in the upper 60's to 70 degrees. Low temperatures are very cool early in the month. The first week can see lows in the mid 40's. By the last week, lows rise to the upper 50's. These chillier temps are actually quite pleasant and make hanging out by the wood stove a pleasure in the evening.


June can see some rain. A few quick but strong fronts passed while I was sailing in early June of last year. Fog is also common, especially in the morning and overnight. Visibility is not as good as later in the summer. However, these conditions make for fabulous atmosphere. You do not soon forget the impact on your senses of this classic northern coastal backround.

Wind conditions are a big feature of June. Other than September, June has the best winds for sailing

A final major highlight of June is the long days. Sunsets last well into the evening giving great photo ops and evening relaxation without interfering with dinner.
