Brown's Creek Sailing Assoc. hosts the annual Great River Race on Lake Guntersville, part of the Tennessee River. That race is over 70 miles, with 24 hours to complete.

Unless I am mistaken, there are even longer races on the Columbia River.

44 miles is a long race, sounds like you did a great job.

The higher jib moves the center of force higher,one of the main disadvantages of a roller furling jib when reefed. Higher center of force means force generated is applied farther along the lever, creating greater heeling/lateral force.
