Connor Baxter (Starboard) put on an impressive performance today to take the win in the long distance race for the final day of action here at the Camp David World Cup of SUP, Stop 3 of the 2014 Stand Up World Series.
This combined with his second place in the World Series Sprints, also secured him the overall win for this all important stop of the World Series, as we now reach the year midpoint.
With howling winds justing up to 25knts, the course was adapted to make the best of the conditions, offering the athletes an incredible downwind run, mixed with a finishing triangle course to complete the distance that also had an intense upwind section.
The downwind run was world class, while the upwind leg was nothing short of grueling, offering a very complete challenge for the assembled athletes, making them dig deep to come out on top.
