Dana Smith's Columbia Challenger Libertine
is a classic - a "plastic classic." At thirty-five years old, she won prettiest boat at the
Plastic Classic competition. And you'd think she was built yesterday.
But Dana didn't restore Libertine to win beauty
pageants. Dana is bent on winning sailboat races in his Stockton Sailing Club series. Last
year he finished in fifth place . This year, with a full set of new Pineapple Sails, he's in first
place. He describes the main and jib as "fabulous" and the new spinnaker as "awesome."
In the first race of the season he beat the
second place boat by 29 minutes.
And Libertine can now skip the last two races of the spring series and still finish first.
