12/10: ACRA Winner Flip
December 10, 2014
Some say there are those that have flipped a single and those who are going to.  At a championship regatta flipping your single usually means you won't see the podium any time soon.  At the 2014 ACRA National Championship James Anglin of UCSB had other ideas.    more
