With over three decades of yachting experience behind her, Captain Sandy Yawn is best known saving the lives on board a vessel during a fire in the pirate infested waters of the Red Sea, as well as commanding the crew aboard a 60 meter mega yacht on the BravoTV series Below Deck: Mediterranean. She is available for bookings as a celebrity speaker for exclusive private events, significant public speaking opportunities, and virtual appearances worldwide.
A Florida native, Yawn is among some of the most respected people in her industry, owing much of her success to being one of the only accomplished female captains in an extremely male dominated space. One of Sandy’s most notable characteristics she displays is bravery, which is easily seen through her actions off the coast of Yemen in the Red Sea. As such, she’s the ideal keynote speaker for events regarding boating, perseverance, women in leadership, travel, ocean life, and more.
Sandy Yawn’s public speaking style is often described as courageous and inspiring, offering sage advice on breaking barriers and never taking no for an answer.
