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

When I had to bring my (new to me) boat down the bay, I had a 100 mile trip to make and I did it in one day, half under sail and half under power. Left at 6 am and pulled into my home marina at 7:30 that evening.

You folks missed this was an 8.0, or 26 foot boat. Deck stepped mast.
These are decent seaworthy boats though, heavy built for a 26.

Sorry that's all I got for you, but the best advice is to NOT stick to the schedule, do what you can, don't push it for an arbitrary timeline.

I was basing my times on a Hunter 26 w/8hp. (My previous boat)

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.

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

It's been awhile and forgot to post that the trip when great. I wanted to thank everyone for all the great info given. I posted a few videos on my YouTube channel, tim jurich
The crazy thing is that I had bought my third sailboat after that trip. I got the sailboat bug
I sold the S2 8.0A that I brought back from MD after buying a Pearson 28-1

thanks, I learned a lot on my first time sailing. Really, I had never sailed before. Make to great friends that helped get the S2 to Bath NC.
