Bow or Stern?

I preffer stern since my transom is open and therefore entering and exiting is easier.
But that''s not why I choose this option.Wind is my factor in choice.

I allways try to point to the wind.

That''s why they went down.
In fact since Beneteau took over (indirectly)quality went down.
