Carson Bio

Carson Crain

Carson grew up sailing in Northeast Harbor, ME and has spent the last 10 years focused on sailing fast high-performance boats.  Leading up to the 2016 Olympics he competed for Team USA in the men’s windsurfer division at numerous world championships, Olympic test events, and the 2015 Pan American Games. In summer 2016, Carson founded an all-American sailing team, Next Generation USA, for the 2017 Red Bull Youth America’s Cup.  On the water he helmed the foiling 45ft catamaran and off the water managed the day-to-day business of running a professional team.  In 2018, Carson briefly returned to Olympic windsurfing before shifting focus toward professional sailing opportunities. He joined Stars+Stripes USA for a training camp in early 2019 and trained with the team in preparation for their victory at the 2020 World Match Race Championship.  In summer 2020, he decided to pursue a spot on Team USA in the mixed foiling multihull division for the 2024 and 2028 Olympic Games.  As an athlete, Carson enjoys combining the physical effort with data driven innovation to get the absolute most out of any everyday of sailing.

Lindsay Gimple

Lindsay grew up in a Coast Guard family and moved often, but luckily always had a home by the water. She considers Stonington Harbor, Connecticut her homeport. Lindsay raced for Cornell University while earning a degree in mechanical engineering, appearing in two ICSA Women’s National Championships and receiving All-Academic Honors two years in a row. She worked as a submarine components engineer before returning to school to earn a Master of Sports Leadership at Northeastern University to better suit her sailing career goals.

Until pairing up with Carson in 2023, Lindsay managed youth offshore campaigns and competed in offshore events. Her first offshore season was as the watch captain on the Swan 48 Dreamcatcher with the youth development MudRatz team. Their efforts in the 2018 Newport Bermuda Race resulted in a Class 5 win and secured the Stephens Brothers Youth Trophy. In 2019, she was the program lead and co-skipper of Dreamcatcher for the Marblehead to Halifax Ocean Race, taking 2nd in class. In addition to her youth campaigns, she has more recently competed in two Rolex Fastnet Races, the Round Ireland Race, the Annapolis to Newport Race, and the Caribbean 600.  Lindsay likes to give back when she can through mentoring, advising, and coaching with programs like The Magenta Project and the MudRatz.
