Re: first Sailboat and first sail from Annapolis to Washington NC

I had missed that this was a S2 8.0. These are very slow boats. I also disagree that these are particularly seaworthy or well built. They are not going to be able to slog it out if they hit heavy air or a bad chop. Also this time of year, this would typically be a beat all the way, something that this boat does not do well.

Hopefully there is a plan B.
