Captain Glenn Shephard from Below Deck Sailing Yacht has a tough choice to make about deckhand Parker McCown.
McCown’s mouth has gotten him into a big quantity of hassle and Shephard has to determine if they will end the season and make it work with McCown or if it’s time for McCown to set sail and depart. Captain Sandy Yawn from Below Deck Mediterranean is aware of all too nicely what Shephard is experiencing. She’s needed to make it work on a number of events with crew members who had been bucking the system.
But, she’s additionally needed to fireplace crew members too when the connection wasn’t going to work out. Yawn fired the chef final season for her shockingly poor efficiency. Plus, she was near firing each chief stew Hannah Ferrier and chef Adam Glick. Yawn has stated previously that changing crew members isn’t a snap, however it’s nonetheless onerous to make it work if you don’t have a robust match both.
She understands how Shephard have to be feeling
Yawn shared in a Bravo digital authentic that she’s been binge-watching Below Deck Sailing Yacht whereas in quarantine. She’s loving the vibe from the season however added, “The crew are crew. They’re typical. A lot of them don’t know what they’re doing. Some of them do.”
“They start getting into each other’s heads,” she provides. “And that’s not usually a good thing. Each season we get a different crew. We gotta take that crew. We gotta make them work [and make them gel]. Sometimes they don’t gel, sometimes they’re oil and water. And that’s a big job for a captain.”
“And right now, I feel for Captain Glenn,” she admits, smiling. “Good luck buddy. To be honest, as a captain you can’t really be their friend. I’m not there to be their friend. I think every captain goes through whatever it takes to make this work.”
Yawn perceive the selections are aggravating
Yawn is de facto placing herself in Shephard’s footwear proper now. She says, “I feel for him. I know it’s a lot of work.” Adding, “He’s probably not sleeping much. And [she cringes] … it’s crew, man. We all have to deal with it.”
How did Yawn cope with her crew points? She positively likes to present her crew members an opportunity for redemption. Yawn wished to fireplace Glick when he purposely added onions to a visitor’s dish when he specified “no onions” on his desire sheet. She allowed him to complete the season however then employed him again for an additional season. Glick crushed each meal when he returned and remained targeted.
While she tried to make it work with chef Mila Kolomeitseva from the earlier season, her meals had been constantly horrific. She made nachos from a field and served slimy fish from a can. Kolomeitseva made it for just a few charters and Yawn needed to gently decrease the increase and let Kolomeitseva go.
Yawn took some warmth from followers for not firing Kolomeitseva sooner. But she defined on Twitter (a number of occasions) it isn’t straightforward to only pluck one other crew member off the dock to make use of as a alternative. That could also be why she understands what a troublesome place Shephard is in with McCown.
