Plenty of singlehand cruisers. You just need the right boat, mindset, and experience. I suppose luck helps, too. When I joined the Catalina club the first three women who introduced themselves to me had started out singlehanding 30 foot boats. Here's the blog of a fellow SailNetter who singlehands his 57 footer:

Sailboat “Zanshin” - single handed voyages around the Caribbean, with logbook, pictures and blog pages

Good luck.
