2005 JULY

Page Railey (USA)

Nomination
Back to our roots here: we said this was a page for new talent, but somehow events then just overtook us. Page Railey is fast becoming established as the face to beat in the newly Olympic Laser Radial class. That said, following wins at the Miami OCR and then the Princess Sofia Trophy in Palma, Page is now back at high school doing some catching up…
Why they won
Yoh, it’s hard to beat the US of A, even if you are Bruno Peyron and you’ve been at sea for just 50 days… ‘Be the first to recognise her, we’re going to hear a lot more!’ – Tracy Usher; ‘A remarkable girl’ – Marilyn Cochran; ‘Who remembers old records?’ – Pete Johnson.
