Sailing away from DC!

Do you know of any good places within a 2-hour commute of DC where it's possible to rent a sailboat and stay somewhere cheap for a weekend?

I want to go relax at sea! I just passed my sailing class, and now all I want to do is head out somewhere reachable from DC where I can sail a boat, hang out on a beach or a pier, and get away from the city. Where can I go??
Best case scenario is that the place is reachable by train or MARC, has lodging for under $100/night, and not too many tourists. I want to go at the end of July, or sometime in August.
I'm open to bed and breakfasts, camping (though probably not the "roughing it" type of camping, because I have never done that before), AirBnB, or anything else. I am also open to renting a car and driving there if it is awesome (though accessible by transit would be much better!). If it matters, I will have US Sailing Small Boat Certification when doing this.
