Re: How hard is it to sail around the world alone?
I think the mental aspects of actually committing to do a solo-circumnavigation are just as difficult, if not more so, than the actual technicalities of sailing. I have no doubt there are countless sailors who have the sailing skills to make it around the world, but there's a much smaller subset that are prepared for the solitude, financial commitment, resilience, persistence, motivation and trade-offs required to be successful.
