Number of years sailing the contender? This is the 6th.
Why did you get on the Contender? Before sailing Contender, I ever sailed racing at least in 2 people and almost with the same crew, so was a new step of my sailing growth and I chose Contender because I though was a very nice boat to sail...and it is!
