This is book number 2 in the Godine Storyteller series.


Friendship, resourcefulness, and sailing, too Arthur Ransome's Swallows and Amazons series has stood the test of time. More than just great stories, each one celebrates independence and initiative with a colorful, large cast of characters.
In We Didn't Mean to Go to Sea, the Walker family has come to Harwich to wait for Commander Walker's return. As usual, the children can't stay away from boats, and this time they meet young Jim Brading, skipper of the sloop Goblin. But fun turns to high drama when the anchor drags, and the four young sailors find themselves drifting out to sea--sweeping across to Holland in the midst of a full gale
The entire Swallows and Amazons series is for children or grownups, anyone captivated by a world of adventure and imagination, exploring and setting sail.
