Re: first Sailboat and first sail from Annapolis to Washington NC
You folks missed this was an 8.0, or 26 foot boat. Deck stepped mast.
These are decent seaworthy boats though, heavy built for a 26.
Sorry that's all I got for you, but the best advice is to NOT stick to the schedule, do what you can, don't push it for an arbitrary timeline.
