"Like to spend a night in the Goblin?"

The Swallows are staying on the Suffolk coast while they wait for their father to return home from China. But although the harbour is bursting with bobbing yachts, barges and steamers, this year there's no chance of any sailing for the landlocked Swallows. That is until they rescue young Jim Brading and his boat the Goblin from a sticky situation and to their delight are recruited as crew members. Mother agrees they can go, on one condition - they absolutely must not sail out past Beach End Buoy and into the open sea...

Ways to order

UK customers may order online or by mail order.

If you are in Australia, Canada, Japan, New Zealand, the USA or an EU member state, you can place online orders with a combined product weight of 1.86kg or less.

We regret that we do not currently process larger orders from these countries, or any orders from other countries, online. However, you can order by sending us an overseas order enquiry.

Dispatch

We will process and post your order as soon as possible. In most cases delivery should be within 3 – 4 business days for UK customers, 4 – 6 days within the EU, and 6 – 8 days elsewhere overseas. But please note that our shop is not staffed 24 hours per day, or 365 days each year (we need some time off for enjoyable Ransome adventures, after all). It is always possible that your order will coincide with our being half way to Wild Cat Island or at an ART event. Please therefore allow up to 28 days for delivery.
