The Tall Ships Races 2018

Wednesday, July 11, 2018 to Saturday, July 14, 2018

As the start host port for The Tall Ships Races 2018, Sunderland will welcome a spectacular fleet of Tall Ships that will travel from all corners of the globe to reach the city and share in the celebrations. The beautiful vessels take centre stage at this breathtaking event, opening to allow free public access at set times throughout the event.

A full programme of entertainment and cultural activity will be delivered across the city over four days, including music, dance, heritage and children's activities.

The key event zones are the Port of Sunderland, a hidden gem at the heart of maritime activity in the city, the North banks of the River Wear, close to the National Glass Centre, and the seafront at Roker and Seaburn, which will be a spectacular viewing points as the ships arrive and depart.
