His Departure Wasn’t A Complete Shock

As Bravo fans know, things got a bit hectic during Season 10 when Captain Lee Rosbach had to exit mid-charter to receive proper medical care for his health issues. Captain Sandy Yawn from Bravo’s Below Deck Mediterranean served as his temporary replacement. Naturally, some fans speculated Captain Sandy Yawn could be announced as his replacement for Season 11.

After receiving surgery to repair his nerve injury, Captain Lee returned to Below Deck before Season 10 concluded. While the surgery was deemed successful, it was painful for Captain Lee to get around.

Captain Kerry Titheradge adds that he expects “perfection” from his crew. Furthermore, if they “f**k around,” they will find out what he’s all about.
