Below Deck star Captain Sandy Yawn has unveiled a brand new career project after leaving the Season 10 cast, with Lee Rosbach returning after medical issues.

Sandy was supported and criticized in almost equal measure over her decisions in the charter season, where she stepped in as a temporary captain.

During the handful of episodes she had on-screen, Sandy fired Alissa Humber and Camille Lamb as part of the interior – admitting an option to let go of the entire team was considered.

A fiery display from Yawn soon came to an end with the return of Captain Lee, who has since posted a message about his future on Bravo TV. With more free time on her hands since leaving the US show’s cast, Sandy has been quick to announce a big career move.

It will be focused on educational and employment opportunities in the maritime industry.

A number of fans have responded to the news on Instagram. One said: “So exciting and a great mission!”

Another said: “You go Captain Sandy! Love this.”

The career move will not affect her role on Bravo TV’s hit show but will allow her to use her platform to help others – a cause she’s mentioned on several podcasts and in interviews in the past.

Moving forward, it is expected that Sandy will return to her usual post as captain on Below Deck Meditteranean, which is set to return later in 2023 with Season 8.
