I just barely woke up in time for this Below Deck Sailing Yacht Recap after dealing with still as yet unresolved technical issues so I am going to get right to the recap. Does this season feel particularly long to anyone else? I’m ready for some Captain Lee. However, Captain Lee is not returning as soon as you might think…. So for now lets see what happens on tonight’s episode.
Marcos has just gotten the news that his best friend’s mother has died. He is also in the middle of a very complicated dinner using molecular gastronomy. On top of that the seas are really rough so they probably won’t get to sail. It’s a whole clusterfuck. Marcos still manages to make a superb dinner. Gary continues to flirt with Scarlett. Marcos goes to bed to call his friend. Meanwhile, the weather gets worse.
The Calm AFTER The Storm?
Kelsie is on anchor watch and has to wake up Gary as other boats start to blow toward Parsifall III. The next morning they are dragging anchor. The wind is terrifying. This is probably the worst weather we have ever seen. They are trying to move and reset the anchor but there is another chain wrapped around their anchor. This is giving me anxiety. Colin has to try to untangle the anchor without getting in the water which is kind of impossible. Gary tries to go out in the tinder to help. He gets the chain off, but they are still dragging anchor. At least these guests are fun and rolling with the tide. Literally.
The super cool charter guests have brought shirts for the crew to wear (or production supplied them) for a relay game of pirates (the guests) versus sailors in a series of relay races. Captain Glinn will be the referee. It was a very tight game but the crew pulled out the win. They won the semen cup errr seaman cup. Marcos is struggling with dinner because Daisy didn’t tell him that Glenn will be at dinner. He is doing more molecular gastronomy and she told him last minute. Marcos kind of needs the distraction. Despite the horrible weather, this was probably most fun charter ever. They also left the biggest tip, $23,000! Gary keeps distracting Scarlett and getting her in trouble.
Preparing For The Final Charter
They can’t go ashore due to weather, but a restaurant is coming to the boat. They have a quick turn around tomorrow for with the final charter. Captain Glenn is supposed to marry the final couple with a beach wedding with the reception on the boat. This is actually smart. Weddings are so expensive. Why not get the wedding, reception and honeymoon all in one on BDSY! Genius! Plus, Marcos will make a multi-tiered wedding cake that is gluten free and dairy free. One of the guests has celiac disease.
Daisy gives Marcos a hug and he cries. I feel so bad for him. He’s worried he won’t be able to pull off the cake. I am not. Marcos can do anything.
