I read this book when I was a boy. I have now bought it for my great nephew. It's an excellent adventure story suitable for girls or boys. A group of children on a yacht off the East Anglian coast find they have drifted into the North Sea by mistake. They end up sailing - without any adults on board - across to Holland. Lots of nautical lore and lots of atmosphere. Very exciting.
The same author wrote the more famous Swallows and Amazons.
