The Sailing Adventures of La Boatique: From Lake Erie to New Zealand is a travel and adventure book about living a dream. In July of 1998 Peter and Susan Wagner sailed a 41-foot ketch named La Boatique away from their dock in Port Clinton, Ohio. In 2002 they ended their journey in Opua, New Zealand. Along the way they discovered the excitement of ocean cruising, the thrill of landing huge fish, and the spectacle of exotic tropical islands. They overcame storms at sea, equipment malfunctions, and threatening illnesses. In the book, The Sailing Adventures of La Boatique, Susan recounts their cruising experiences during their four-year voyage. Susan and Peter demonstrate how they lived a low budget yet comfortable lifestyle aboard La Boatique. After sailing halfway around the world, they discovered that there is no place like their home waters of Lake Erie. The Sailing Adventures of La Boatique: From Lake Erie to New Zealand is 288 pages and includes 32 pages of color photographs. The book is for those who dream of sailing in the tropics.

Come join Peter and Susan Wagner's cruises on La Boatique.

Peter and Susan Wagner set sail on a 41-foot elegant classic sailing ketch named La Boatique. They begin their journey along the southern shoreline of Lake Erie at Port Clinton, Ohio and end it in Opua, New Zealand.

They discover adventures both at sea and ashore. A rogue wave nearly buries La Boatique during the trip from Bermuda to the Eastern Caribbean. While touring the Caribbean island of Montserrat, an active volcano erupts. They trek through jungles to find sparkling waterfalls. They watch huge leatherback turtles lay eggs on a beach, blue-footed boobies dive for fish, and a massive humpback whale swim alongside their boat with her calf at her side. They cope with medical emergencies in the tropics. They define the tasks required for cruising, boat maintenance jobs, and how to handle funds needed for cruising in the age of the Internet and ATMs. They demonstrate inexpensive ways to communicate with friends and family through the use of a web site and single side band e-mail.

“There are many books written by men who convinced their loves to go cruising; but few books written by the loves who did it.”
