‘Below Deck Med’ Season 9 Captain Sandy Yawn Tells Iain Maclean To Take His Position More Seriously

ATHENS, GREECE: During the latest episode of “Below Deck Mediterranean” Season 11, Captain Sandy Yawn expressed his displeasure when boatswain Nathan Gallagher and a guest named Laura veered off course while at sea.

This incident led Captain Sandy to question Bosun Iain Maclean’s ability to properly supervise the crew, as he had failed to keep a close eye on the duo. Eventually another boat came in and helped retrieve Nathan and Laura and bring them back to Mustique.

When Nathan and Laura were in the water, deckhand Joe Bradley noted, “He’s on a paddleboard. Platform handling.” In the blink of an eye, the two were too far apart at sea.

Then primary charter guest Gigi Fernandez informed Captain Sandy that some random sailboats had taken one of the guests. Sandy Yawn expressed her disappointment and embarrassment at the whole situation.

“That doesn’t make me happy. It’s embarrassing,” Sandy said.

In a confessional, Sandy emphasized the importance of always having two people watching guests and held Iain accountable for delegating this responsibility. She stressed the need to prioritize the safety and supervision of guests, especially when they are in the water on any water toy.

“I’m not happy. Always keep an eye on the guests. The guests are in the water on any toy and an auction person is always watching them. Make them a priority. That’s it. Go apologize to Gigi,” she Sandy said to Iain.
