You have 3 days minimum to get to Norfolk if you do not sail at night. For full time sailing/motoring down the bay I would estimate 24 hours in decent conditions. Contrary to the advice above, I would suggest you stay WITHIN but on the edge of the main shipping channel to avoid crab traps which you can't see at night. During the day...pick a straight line course.
Once you get to Norfolk and the ICW you cannot travel at night except perhaps for the alternate ICW section through the Pamlico sound to the Neuse River which could save you some time. If you stick to the standard ICW and daytime travel you can count on 50 miles a day and Georgetown is mile 410 so you have 8 days weather permitting minimum on the ICW + the trip down the bay. Allow 2 weeks.
