A yachtie who gets seasick may sound like a bit of an oxymoron, but that's been a reality for Kasey Cohen this season of Below Deck Mediterranean. Almost immediately after the Talisman Maiton set sail, the third stew has basically only been seen bending over a bucket, so sick she hasn't really been able to do her crew duties (clip above).
But Kasey isn't the only yachtie to have experienced this. Why, the Stud of the Sea himself, Captain Lee Rosbach also got seasick when he first got into yachting. "Seasickness can be overcome, but it is tough, I was seasick for my first year in yachting, been there did that, its no fun," Captain Lee tweeted during Tuesday night's episode of Below Deck Med. "That being said, it can be done. Work through it. Not easy, but doable."
When it comes to Kasey's work as the season progresses, Captain Lee said that "she deserves the benefit of the doubt." "A team member is always a team member until they prove otherwise," he tweeted. "I would not be a Captain today if my mates had given up on me when I suffered the same affliction."
Of course, Kasey was thrilled to receive this kind of support from the Below Deck boss. "Wow I love @capthlr," she tweeted. "Thank you for defending me and giving me the benefit of the doubt."
With Captain Lee's seal of approval, we're expecting big things from Kasey this season of Below Deck Med.
