    Contention 33 built in England..1976 3/4 tonner. Pretty fast upwind. Downwind..thank GOD for the huge rudder! Former Patriot of SW Michigan. Became American Blue in Harbor Springs. I bought it in 1989 and changed the name to the first Spar Wars. I think it is in South Haven now.

    1976 Contention 33 3/4ton..Originally "Patriot". Peterson design. This picture is while it was mine: Spar Wars I on Lake Charlevoix. Boat had some good race history around Block Island. Other names: American Blue Second picture @ Ugotta Regatta in Harbor Springs. 1992? Boat loved waves...but a handful downwind...the IOR death rolls! My Olson 30 is much more fun! Saw a sistership in Portugal a couple of years ago. Now that is a tight ass!
