tad, i'm green with envy.

the luff on a challenger sail is approximately two feet shorter than the contender, according to boat specs on the cyoa website.
contender:
I 100% jib luff 30.1 ft
J 100% jib foot 8.8 ft
P main luff 27.0 ft
E main foot 11.5 ft
challenger:
I 100% jib luff 30.1 ft
J 100% jib foot 9.0 ft
P main luff 25.0 ft
E main foot 11.5 ft

there lots of used sail websites that may have what you need at a reasonable price. i need to remeasure my main, 'cause my boom is too low to suit me.
i was told if you find something that is a little shorter in those dimensions, it will matter little, but i would stay as close to the originals as possible. longer is NOT an option.
also, check out the sailrite sail database for a cross reference.

ps still interested in your old companionway hatch, if you still have it.
