Below Deck’s Captain Glenn Shephard Discusses Awkward Moment Chef Adam Told Him to Stop Sailing in Windy Weather

On Below Deck Sailing Yachtrough waters are a nightmare for chefs, who face a roomful of falling objects. In the current season, Chef Marcos Spaziani sustained a head injury as a stream of blood dripped toward his eye.

It seems Marcos (even with the injury) had fewer complaints than another chef from the series: Adam Glick.

On the Melissa Rivers’ Group Text Podcast, Captain Glenn Shephard addressed an awkward encounter with Adam, who was struggling to cook in windy weather. “Adam, I remember getting quite upset, our chef from season 1,” shared Glenn.

“He actually came up to the flybridge,” the captain continued. “And, we’re having a great sail and he’s like, ‘OK can you guys stop sailing?’ I’m like, ‘No, I can’t stop sailing. The guests are enjoying this.’ We’ve got to figure out a way to do both. We got to be able to do the sailing and get a nice meal prepared for them. It’s a challenge, but you know, we do it.”

During the episode, Adam gave less-than-glowing comments. “I know it’s my job to cook under sail, but it couldn’t possibly be more windy,” he said. “It’s absolutely ridiculous.”

 

In the episode’s confessional, Glenn explained the situation: “We didn’t have any wind when the guests wanted to sail yesterday. So I can’t pass up this opportunity,” he said. “Adam doesn’t get to come up and tell me how to sail.”

During the reunion, Adam shared he was finished with yachting. “After 12 years living and working on the open ocean, I’m f**king over it,” he said. “I’m ready to have a ranch, I’m ready to live my life on land and grow a beautiful garden. And do the things that I want to do, like feed people organically over a fire. And none of those things can I do on a boat.”

The chef followed through with his dream and kissed the world of yachting goodbye. Now, Adam cooks in the great outdoors. He also has a foldable chef knives collection and is brewing up a cookbook.
