Sure....with a multihull. The actual record is 45 days and 13 hours and 42 minutes. Even on a VOR 70 non stop with a crew I guess that they can easily take some days from those 70. It is very different to do it Solo or in a full crewed boat. The boat can also be less forgiving and more faster than an Open 60.
