“When I’m a captain I’m not there to make friends, I’m there to do my job,” she continued. “Firing people is never fun, but I try to do it in a gentle way. It doesn’t mean we’ve ended a working relationship. I’m not friends with Camille, we’re not buddies. She showed up, I love the support and it’s like another colleague in the industry. So good terms? I don’t look at good terms. I have to say I’m very neutral when it comes to the crew.”
Drama aside, Sandy assured fans firing Camille was a last resort. “Remember I stepped on Captain Lee‘s boat—the last thing I want to do is start firing his crew,” she said, referencing Lee Rosbach leaving earlier this season due to health issues, “so it’s a very hard line. But my main priority is the client, what’s best for the boat. Happy crew, happy boat, happy client.”
