Chief Stew Jessica “Sweets” Proctor, first photo on left, and Stew Anna Klerer are below deck on M/Y Elixir, a 180-foot (55m) Amels.

Proctor, who is from the UK, has been a stew for seven years. After three years of hard work aboard the busy charter yacht, she is bidding farewell to Elixir this week to head to her next adventure: Mount Everest base camp.

Proctor shows she’s strong enough for any mountain by giving her husband, First Mate Corey Dunn, a lift.
