Advice for coastal trip.. Newport to New Jersey

I Am Most likley taking delivery of Cal 39 in October. Boat has GPS, LORAN everything else you could thing of as well, sail inventory, creature comforts.. You get the idea.

I Am planning on keeping her in New Jersey. I Have been sailing for years but limited to Maryland (for the most part). Never did an off shore trip. So, do I (with crew) sail her down myself? Or; hire a captain since this will be my first time with this type of trip.. Estimate right around 40 hours non-stop. Worst case... Can go 60 hours without re-fueling. Advice wanted.. You can e-mail me at Also, let me know if you would like to go..!!
