Captain Sandy Yawn knows how to keep her cool in stressful nautical situations. Below Deck Mediterranean fans have seen her docking the yacht with inches to spare and deal with multiple anchor disasters. She had an incompetent chef in her galley, and had to mentor deck crew members in past seasons.
Despite all these issue and more, Captain Sandy keeps returning to the series and has become the face of the show, along with Chief Stew Hannah Ferrier. These two ladies are often in conflict regarding management of the interior, but the paycheck must be too good to part ways over table settings.
However, there was one instance where Captain Sandy did lose her cool and threatened to quit. And of course, it involved Hannah, because that girl really triggers Sandy in an unprecedented way.
It could be any one of the times that Captain Sandy felt that Hannah ignored her requests or didn’t deliver stellar interior service. But at the show’s BravoCon panel, Captain Sandy described the moment where she claimed that Hannah pushed her over the edge.

According to Decider, it was the “one coke” incident from Season 3. Hannah and Bosun Conrad Empson took a group of guests out to a bar then on the tender for a sunset cruise. Captain Sandy specifically asked Hannah to return to the boat after “one coke” at the bar. Hannah ended up spending four-plus hours off the boat and left her exhausted Second Stew Brooke Laughton to do all the heavy lifting.
Once Captain Sandy realized the situation she made an irate phone call to a bewildered and clueless Conrad to return his lady love back to the yacht immediately. Then Hannah received the full wrath of Sandy Yawn. She could only respond with hyperventilating and histrionics.

At the time, Captain Sandy was unloading on a showrunner and said of Hannah, “let her drive the boat if she thinks she’s the Captain. She’s insubordinate, she doesn’t listen.”
Captain Sandy threatened, “I’m gonna walk off this boat and Hannah can dock it.” Incidentally, this was also the beginning of the end for Hannah and Conrad. That promising little love ended when Hannah endlessly goaded him over 50 euros.
