I’ve been a fan of Below Deck since the first series aired on Bravo TV in 2013. I’ve seen every single episode including all the Below Deck Mediterranean shows starring Captain Sandy Yawn of the Sirocco yacht. Yep, I am a huge fan!

But who exactly is Captain Sandy’s girlfriend Leah Shafer? We know how old she is, but why is she famous for singing? I have to admit I’d not heard of her before so did some research and here are some top-line facts:

You might have previously read on Pontoonopedia about Kate Chastain’s arrest history, which was covered extensively in the press, but did you know Captain Sandy also has previous?

Whilst the Captain Sandy Yawn we now know and love seems to be one of the more level-headed crew members on the Sirocco yacht, and is respected in her skipper status, she’s admitted to making mistakes in the past.

We know this because she made comments in one episode about being arrested for drinking and driving in her early 20s… but managed to turn her life around very successfully!
