Meanwhile, Captain Sandy had a tough time finding love as she was always away at sea, filming Below Deck. In May 2018, she told The Daily Dish:

It’s hard to have a relationship being a yacht captain. Most of my friends that are yacht captains, they’ve divorced or they hook up with people in the industry, and so far I haven’t met anyone, really… It’s about the person for me.

In days to come, we’d like to see Captain Sandy and her new love interest, Leah, starting a new married life together.
