Another good choice!!!
I just get concerned when someone is just learning to sail and looking at something like a WalkerBay and asking questions like, "How far offshore can I go?" I just have a red light go off telling me we need to be talking about more boat.
As I'm sure you know, I like to error on the side of conservatism. When in doubt go for slightly more seaworthy than you think you need.
