However I don't think the J111 is as adapted as the A35 (or the JPK 10.10) to solo or short crew sailing, specially downwind. I don't imagine a guy going relatively fast downwind at the J111 while sleeping

I see that there is now a new crew position on racing yachts: GoPro camera operator. Something borrowed from Volvo Ocean Racing - i.e., the media "crew". Would like to have that job on the boat, and get off the bow for a change.
