I recently read Race Against Time by Ellen Macarthur. It gives you a really good feel for what it takes to single hand a monster tri.

30 knots, at night, under autopilot, asleep, RIGHT nucking futs!

There was a pretty downbeat interview with Yann Guichard skipper of Spindrift 2 the 130 ft tri. He talked about how physically hard it was to ' maneuver ' [ his word ] the big tri I guess he was talking about tacking and gibing.

It seems to have vanished from the Route du Rhum site.

Maybe 130 ft is too big?
