The Tall Ships Race visiting Sunderland this week with good opportunities for some great photographs. Visit tallshipssunderland.com for the time table of events and locations.
A number of the ships will be berthed in the historic Hudson Dock not normally open to the public and a bus service from Park Lane Bus Station and Metro takes you there every 12 minutes, service 33T.
The ships set sail on Saturday 14th July heading north up the coast before turning east for the next stage of the event. The website suggests 5pm to 7pm to catch them in full sail, but go early to get a parking place. Check out the website for parking restrictions etc.
