Clearwater's Paige Railey Strikes Gold in Germany
By Bev Dolezal
Paige Railey recently competed in Kiel Week in Kiel, Germany.
Definitely on track for her Olympic campaign for 2012 is local sailor Paige Railey, who put in a very impressive performance last week to capture the gold medal in Kiel, Germany. Railey sails the laser radial, and hopes to represent the United States in the 2012 Summer Olympics in England. Kiel Week is one of seven International Sailing Federation's Sailing World Cup events, with the only US venue being the Rolex OCR's in Miami. Railey already won that event, and took silver in Melbourne, Australia. The remainder of the ISF's events are being held in Europe and Australia, and are a prelude to picking the United States' best sailors in 10 Olympic classes and 3 Paralympics classes.
