how to sync sound with other non-gopro cameras in imovie 2017

I recently shot a video from two angles, one being with the gopro, the other with my point and shoot. I am trying to edit them in imovie and am having trouble syncing up the sound. I used 3 claps to line the clips initially but after a few minutes the gopro always seems to run itself out of sync with the other camera in both audio and video. I can cut the clip and resync it but that takes forever. Is there anything I can do to make sure that when the clips are lined up at the beginning, they don't run out of sync a few seconds or minutes later. The two angles are of the exact same subject and were recorded simultaneously. Thanks!
