In 1967 the first prototype was called Dorothy. The second in 1968, was named Skippy after a bright young Australian TV star kangaroo. Skippy was a sporty little trapeze dinghy from the design pad of Australian skiff sailor Bob Miller/Ben Lexcen, later the America's Cup designer of note. It was finally renamed the Contender. Miller won the trials for a new Olympic dinghy with Skippy and although Olympic politics kept the Australian design off the Olympic podium, 2,500 boats later its popularity continues.
