Blissfully shallow and carefree, Kate Chastain was your typical twenty something college co-ed. Well, until reality gave her a wake-up call in the form of a diploma, that is. At a crossroads after graduation, a serendipitous coincidence convinced Kate to abandon life as she knew it and jump feet first into the world of working on mega yachts. At first, she stumbled her way through life as a stewardess, just trying to adjust to her new surroundings and clumsily 'learning the ropes' via trial and error. Like shit-tons of error. But now, nearly ten years and a hit reality show later, Kate is finally ready to share the good, the bad, and the downright shocking details about her life at sea with the world's most rich and famous.

It was 2008 and we were anchored off of St.Tropez. I had only been a yachtie for two seasons at the time when I turned to the Captain's wife, and said, "You know, I could write a book about all of insane things we see working on these boats.....the sex, the money, the celebrities...."
My older, more experienced coworker rolled her eyes and laughed then was quick to dismiss my silly idea, "Kate, of course we could all write a book about what we see on yachts. We've all said it for years.....but, if you actually did that, you would never get hired on another yacht again. "
She went back to polishing the crystal wine glass in her hand and I was confused for a second.
"But Stacie, if so many people knew about the book that I couldn't get a yacht job, would I still really need one?"

Kate wrote this book with her own special brand of wit and honesty. I knew from her TV show that she was a highly likeable human being and after reading her book I found her to be even more so, can't wait for the next installment!

Very intriguing and inspiring. I just wish a few more accounts of her yachting experiences were shared. I hope to read a book with her reality yachting experiences soon!

If you are reading this book for a little insight on the show Below Deck, stop before you even start. While it is a good read, I think I was looking for more on the actual show and how Kate got into it; along with her experience.
