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. 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. He is also active in the sport fishing industry and fishes, refits boats and delivers yachts for a living. While at sea, he lives primarily off the fish he catches himself, a lifestyle he elaborates on in his book, Fishing to Live.
