'room to tack' situations, where the most important thing to do was to sail clean and hightail it out of there as quickly as possible." The pair have been borrowing or char tering from friends. They're currently using their friend Cole Hatton's boat. She's had a #13 on her bow since Amelia sailed Nationals in her back in 2015, and she's been a 'lucky 13' for them. But they hope to buy a boat of their own in 2019. "We're also looking forward to returning to the High Sierra and Tomales Bay, and I'm hoping to coordinate a 2v2 event with random pairs for some fun team racing," adds Amelia. See www.vanguard15.org.
