Paige Railey is one of the most accomplished Laser Radial sailors of all time. The two-time Olympian, two-time Pan American sailing champion and record five-time world championship medalist has her eyes on the 2021 Olympic Gold Medal for the US Sailing Team.

Paige invited Blockheads to ask her anything and took over the @harkenblockhead Instagram Story for a day. She brought us along for her day, starting with a bicycle training ride, going to a doctor’s appointment, then training on her home gym.

Blockheads came prepared with some great questions! Here was one of Paige’s best nuggets of advice:

“Enjoy what you do. Enjoy the sailing and being out with your friends on the water. Then next, enjoy getting closer to achieving your goals. Don’t focus on the end result. Look at the process and appreciate the steps that you’re making.”
