  1. I admire Captain Sandy for so many reasons but especially her commitment to her sobriety. I have been trying to get sober for so many years, and this year I have lost everything because of my alcoholism. I watch Below Deck to marvel at how she only drinks water during all these parties. I know it’s stupid, but it gives me some hope.

  2. I admire Cap’t Sandy so much for her loving manner towards the crew and that she acts to model the behaviour she expects herself.

    Captain Sandy is the epitome of professionalism
    and just plain intelligent and likable
    I wish I had the privilege of observing and viewing her tremendous skill in respect to her maintaining
    the respect and admiration of her crew
    She is stern yet kind. The respect that is given to her by the crew is nothing less than impressive
    I could learn a lot from Captain Sandy and she must be applauded for her decency and absolute respect she gives to all who come in contact with her
    If there were more people like Captain Sandy the world would be a better place. I mean every word of this and I hope she has the opportunity of reading this. Thank you Captain
