The Tall Ships Sunderland 2018- Day 5

Written by on 14th July 2018

The final day of The Tall Ships Sunderland today! There is still plenty to keep you entertained, from arts to dancing, to live music!

The ships are making their final safety checks before making their way to Esbjerg for the first leg of the race, and there is Summer Streets based at Seaburn Recreation Park. We are also going to be broadcasting from there too, so we’ll see you there!

Whats on Today?


At 5.30pm until 7pm the ships will parade northwards up the coast to Souter Point, before turning round and heading out to the North Sea. The coastal resorts of Roker and Seaburn will provide fabulous viewing points as the city bids a fond farewell to the fleet. Leg 1 of The Tall Ships Races from Sunderland to Esbjerg will begin out to sea between 8pm and 9pm.
