    warhorse at the 2012 Cowes

    doesn't start really rolling to about 6 1/2 minutes in. gives me added respect for what Don and the boys did in little 28 footers

    i think the go pro takes a little of the effect out of it, or do Apaches ride that good

    When the sky is grey,look out to sea.
    When the waves are high and the light is dying,
    well raise a glass and think of me...
    When I'm home again,
    boys, I'll be buying!

    That makes it easy to see why so much stuff breaks in offshore racing.

    Pity there wasn't anyone who could film from another boat or chopper .Some of those airborn moments must have been spectacular.
    Just because something's old doesn't mean you throw it away !

    here's a clip from the 2010 race aboard cinzano, gives an idea of the beating the body takes

    The end of last summer we ran a 42X Cigarette 20 miles south to the St Clair river. When we left the marina in Lexington the guys thought we were crazy as it was an honest 7' to 9' according to NOAA. We were able to run 45 - 50 the whole run, and it was amazing. Even at that speed we got a lot of air and split a lot of waves. It was exciting to say the least.

    I used my GoPro to record the whole thing, including a 112 mph blast for a couple of minutes after running under the Bluewater Bridge. When I watched the video, I was amazed at how calm it made the ride look. I kept watching the sections where you could see the boat getting air, but from the GoPro, it looked almost like you could have been waterskiing.

    Bill,

    Where was the Go Pro mounted to the boat?
    My thoughts . . . for discussion .. . because i'm about to spend a week in the Abacos boating and desire to capture the water . . the waves and more

    The camera needs to be mounted so that the image shows the horizon along with onboard motion, capturing three items to show the "severity" of the action . . .?
