Caroline grew up sailing Optis at Kollegewidgwok Yacht Club in Blue Hill, Maine . Coming from a small club in a small town, traveling for regattas was the norm and she quickly became hooked on the sport while traveling for training and racing with a group of close friends. As she aged into the 420 class, the travel, training, and competition became more serious and Caroline pursued sailing as her main sport. She competed domestically in the Club 420 and represented the U.S. at multiple i420 World and European Championships. While training in the i420, Caroline practiced out of the US Sailing Center in Miami, where she was exposed to the Olympic pathway and saw the Olympics as a personally achievable goal. Determined and headstrong, Caroline has been working towards that goal ever since.
In college, Caroline sailed for and captained the Tufts University Sailing Team and made her first steps into Olympic sailing with a start in the 49erFX. Upon graduation, Caroline booked a one-way ticket to California to sail FXs and she’s been on the move in the Olympic sailing world ever since. In 2018, she transitioned from the skiff to the foiling Nacra 17, where she continues to push herself to be the best sailor and athlete she can be. She campaigned for the 2020 Tokyo Games with skipper Ravi Parent, but they fell short of Team USA selection. Despite this, Caroline is pushing forward and looking to partner up with a new skipper for the 2024 quad. Keep an eye out for Caroline to make a strong effort in the next quad with a partner still to be named.
