Blue Moons Don't Come Cheap

The ship’s log and journal of a 21 day 2500 mile passage from Oahu to Seattle. This was a 2 handed passage my brother and I made aboard a 40′ sloop in August 2012. Includes 40 pictures.

About the Author:

In 2001, 31-year-old Lance Gettler sold everything he owned, bought a sailboat he’d never seen over the internet and went sailing around the world. He didn’t know how to sail and had only been sailing once before, nine years prior.

Lance is now a professional delivery captain, delivering yachts worldwide. From 2005 to 2006, he sailed around the world aboard his 41′ ketch with his brother, who didn’t know how to sail either. You can read about that in “Ask Me Anything About Sailing Around The World”. In 2011 alone, he logged more than 12,000 nm at sea aboard three different sailboats.

To the present day, he lives aboard a sailboat in the Caribbean, working on and repairing sailboats.
