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.

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

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.

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

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