The contest is a different type of sailboat, heavier with a long keel but I don't see it as a slow boat really. Similar to Albergs, early Seafarers, Spencers, and early Pearson boats. A lot of people would sooner be in the Contest in a blow offshore than the Hunter. But I don't think the Hunter is a bad boat just designed for a different use - coastal vs offshore.
