She’s not your mother, so no, Captain Sandy doesn’t care what you do on your downtime — just keep it below deck.
Speaking with PEOPLE before Tuesday’s season premiere of Below Deck Mediterranean, the new captain explains what it’s like being in charge of a crew of 20-somethings, what her captaining style is and how she handles all the onboard drama.
“I’m not bossy or bitchy, more like reality,” Captain Sandy tells PEOPLE of her leadership style. “I will like slap them across the head and go, ‘How old are you? You’re 24? Okay, well you’re acting like you’re 12.’ ”
