Captain Sandy Yawn and girlfriend Leah Shafer have been pretty inseparable since first meeting in November 2018. After publicly confirming their relationship for the first time last year, the couple has frequently voiced their love and support for one another on social media. Now, Captain Sandy is sharing a key part of maintaining their blissful relationship in a new Instagram post.

How to Watch

The Below Deck Mediterranean captain and the Denver-based gospel singer often document their adventures on Instagram, including their latest ski trip to Aspen. On January 17, Captain Sandy shared a picture of her and Shafer smiling and looking bundled up while standing under an umbrella in the snow.

Aspen is my favorite place to ski! Leah is learning to ski,” she wrote in the caption. Captain Sandy then went on to drop some wise words on how to preserve a happy relationship, adding, “Here’s the cool part, one thing I know for sure is when [you’re] in a relationship you must play together!”  

Captain Sandy is always full of sage advice, as we’ve seen time and time again on Below Deck Med. But clearly, her wisdom extends far beyond yacht life  and it’s obviously working for her and Shafer. The two have already been through plenty of ups and downs, with Captain Sandy supporting Shafer through breast cancer surgery last fall.

Now that Shafer is cancer-free, the two seem to be enjoying every minute of their time together. Shafer also took to Instagram to share some beautiful photos of their recent Aspen getaway.

You know what they say — the couple that skis together, stays together!
