I actually have closer to 10 days than one week for the trip. The Rehoboth Bay Sailing Association has itineraries posted on their website where they've made circumnavigations of the peninsula in 11 days, doing no more than 50 miles per day and no night sailing.

I looked at the Rehoboth Beach Sailing site, and the course seems reasonable for your boat:

I've stopped all of those places. Sand Shoal Inlet is also workable.

Alas, they didn't do it in 11 days without engines.
