Captain Carol Hesson

Narragansett Sailing School

Carol Hesson grew up sailing in Boston, experiencing boats from dinghies to yachts. She lived aboard and cruised throughout New England and in the Mediterranean. At 38, she left the practice of law to share her love of the outdoors and empower women through sports. Since then, Carol has made a living sailing, surfing, and skiing full time.

Carol holds a 50 Ton Master’s License with Auxiliary Sail Endorsement, is a US Sailing Level 3 certified Race Coach (a reflection of her love of racing) and an American Sailing Association certified cruising instructor for levels 101, 103, and 104. Carol has been Director of Sailing at numerous yacht clubs and sailing facilities. She ran adaptive race programs and the nation’s largest women’s race program. Currently, she is a race coach and sailing instructor at Narragansett Sailing School.
