Video from the 2011 Newport-Cabo Race on "Condor" an Andrews 70 owned by Lindy Thomas. 800 mile race in the Pacific that saw a 36 hour storm with 30+ knot winds that forced 2/3 of the fleet to turn around and left one boat completely dismasted Fraught with our own difficulties, we persevered through the night, limited our own damage, and finished the race.

We jokingly referred to it as the "Fun Tax" we had to pay for the awesome conditions we saw the rest of the race. For the next 3 days we surfed downwind towards Cabo at times as fast as 21.6 knots! Shot on a GoPro in 720p. Cut in FCP with slow motion using Twixtor Plug-in.
