It sounds like you need to gain some experience in long distance ocean sailing. Taking courses is always good, but there are alternatives. I suggest you look for an opportunity to sail around Delmarva, either on your boat with the assistance of an experienced friend, or as crew for someone else. Every year there are people who sail around Delmarva in groups, and it's a great way to get a little offshore experience and to see if it's to your liking. You'll learn about on-board living, sailing, weather, and navigation in unfamiliar waters, and you'll gain self-confidence.
