#Offshore - New footage from Team Aqua’s RC44 shows their Irish pitman Simon Johnson in the heart of the action.

And the video takes that literally — as it tracks his heart rate topping out at 181bpm after a leeward drop, a left-hand turn and an early tack.

The former crew on Anthony O’Leary’s Ker 39 Antix is clearly in peak physical condition in his new role with the British-owned RC44 Championship Tour mainstay.
