    Very cool! I’ve been reading the series to my kids for the past year and we’re currently on Coot Club. We read We Didn’t Mean to Go to Sea first and then went back to the first book, Swallows and Amazons, and have been reading straight through.

    Great for all young and old sailors. It has special meaning for our family in that my wife is British and grew up in Norfolk, the setting for lots of the adventure. Luke and I actually went sailing this summer at Thorpness in a boat that looks just like the one in the clip, Swallow.


    Haven’t seen the movie before so thanks for sharing this clip!
