August is typically a wonderful time of year to spend in the Pacific Northwest. Temperatures during the day will range from 70-85 degrees, but you should be prepared for cool evenings in the 50-60 degree range. Additionally, you should be prepared for spending time on deck while underway, which may require a wool sweater or fleece jacket.
