Pippa contour helmet cam

It took over three hours to upload less than 3 minutes of video. Before the edit the 1 hour footage I have estimated at 17 hours. I am very impressed with the camera, my new laptop is the only device that will play the footage though.

Thanks Nige. I will try to upload more with a faster connection. I have footage through the start of Lyme bay. The Buzzi Techno was awesome. We had a kill switch get pulled about 4 minutes in and ever one passed us. We were up to second again by Portland Bill but quartered some large swells rounding the Bill that wrecked my shoulder. Lesson learned!
Careful at the Bill!
Maybe one of these years I will make the whole race without injuring myself.

I was just fine 4 minutes in, I'll show you the rough stuff if it keeps me uploading all night. Anyway you were in the pub having a beer while we were out braving the elements. Gone soft if you ask me.
My good friend I hope all is well. Come on back. RB12, Monte Carlo!!!!!!!

Hey Mike, no problem at all, was my pleasure. I hope that in some small way it helped you on your journey! Amazing to see what you did with the boat and look forward to seeing here again in the flesh sometime in the future I still remember the day your US friends helped us haul the over sized fresh water cooled engines into the engine bay in the pissing rain at Drivers just before Cowes weekend!! Say hi to them for me.
