I've thought of that as well - good luck with finding a suitable place on the Bay. The notorious "Chesapeake chop" will make it difficult to get up on the foils and stay there - no matter what level of wind is available.

The better solution is to go further afield for better foil sailing grounds, like the Chincoteague Bay side of Assateague or Pamlico Sound down in the Outer Banks. There's also some protected waters down by Crisfield, but that's a pretty long haul by car.
