James Quaife and Robin Rayner from New Frame Productions said: “We are delighted to be collaborating with the Southampton International Boat Show whilst bringing the tour of Captain Sandy Live to both Southampton and Poole this September. It is the perfect opportunity for Sandy to visit the largest boat show in the UK. We can’t wait to meet you all there.”

Captain Sandy is one of the most recognisable reality TV stars of the past ten years. She has taken part in six seasons of Below Deck Mediterranean and has accrued a huge fan base in the UK and throughout the world. At Captain Sandy Live she will share everything her fans want to know about life at the helm, from the stunning locations and pinpoint precision parking to the never-ending drama onboard the superyacht. Audience members will be able to cast their questions to the captain regarding her incredible career, how she beat cancer, survived a life-threatening bike crash and built an outstanding reputation as an elite class of superyacht captain.  

Captain Sandy is a leader, hero, international speaker and businesswoman, whose exceptional leadership style has helped her to break through every obstacle in her path – from the glass ceilings and near-fatal accidents on land to pirates and fires at sea!

As a renowned superyacht captain with over 30 years of international maritime experience, Captain Sandy’s integrity and courage have earned her an outstanding reputation as an elite class of captain, and recognition from the International Superyacht Society, who bestowed upon her the prestigious Distinguished Crew Award for her bravery in the midst of a catastrophic fire and pirate threat that occurred in 2006 off the coast of Yemen.
