The Billings Chamber of Commerce is thrilled to have Captain Sandra Yawn (“Captain Sandy”) - renowned superyacht captain made famous by the television show Below Deck Mediterranean - as the keynote speaker for the 2023 Billings Chamber Breakfast.   

This is the Chamber’s largest annual event and is presented for 2023 by Nonstop Local. Captain Sandy will take the stage on Thursday, March 30, at the Alberta Bair Theater. The event will run from 7-9 a.m., with doors opening at 6 a.m. and breakfast served after the presentation.  

Captain Sandy has made big waves as a leader, international speaker, businesswoman, and superyacht captain with over 30 years of experience on international waters. She is known for her courage and integrity. She shares invaluable lessons with audiences about character building, acknowledging failure, inspiring a crew, and empowering them to win as a team “in the same boat.” Her book, Be the Calm or Be the Storm: Leadership Lessons from a Woman at the Helm was released January 9, 2023, making her arrival into Billings all the more exciting.   

Prior to Captain Sandy’s address, the Chamber will present awards to the 2023 Business Excellence honorees. Tickets can be purchased through the Alberta Bair Theater Box Office or their website ( You can also find more information at
