As I remember it, TQSL does not have a wide choice of
contests for the Cabrillo format.

I think you would be better off converting your tr log.dat
to an ADIF file, and using that for the tqsl input. The
KA5WSS log converter will convert from log.dat to adif. It
is available here: http://www.ka5wss.com/Software/LogConv/

I would recommend using the old version referenced at the
very bottom of the page. The old version does not require
installation of the Microsoft ".NET" framework, which I hear
is a big deal.
