Wear trending with new Tall Ships Sunderland campaign



Wear sailing - and we’re trending. Within an hour of its launch, the #wearonboard campaign - which aims to promote next year’s Sunderland leg of The Tall Ships Races - was already a social media hit. On this day in 2018 we will be welcoming The Tall Ships Races to our great city - exciting times ahead! Julie Elliott From MP Julie Elliott to dozens of the city’s big organisations, the campaign is a social media sensation. The campaign has been launched jointly by Sunderland City Council and its media partners which include the Sunderland Echo. The idea is to spread the word about the event which will see up to 80 ships converge on Sunderland in July next year. To get involved in Wear On Board, all you have to do is put up a post on social media with the hashtag #wearonboard. You will join the flood of supporters who backed it within minutes of the campaign’s launch. Here are some of the great examples of people who are already playing their part.

Wear On Board with Tall Ships Sunderland - are you?

These Finnish train guards are all smiles as they pose with the Wear On Board poster. They’re the first to take up the challenge of telling the whole world that the races are coming to Wearside in July next year.

The guards are based in Turku in Finland. It’s a a city on the southwest coast of the country.

The city is also one of the legs of this year’s Tall Ships Races and we’re delighted to have them backing Sunderland’s 2018 event.

Why not join them if give Sunderland your support.

We are asking people to have their photograph taken with the Wear On Board poster and then send the snap to the Sunderland Echo.

They’re sailing - to Sunderland! More tall ships confirmed for 2018 Wearside spectacle



More tall ships have signed up to be part of an international spectacle which is coming to Wearside next year.

The James Cook and Rupel have become the latest vessels to confirm they are on their way to Sunderland for next year’s city leg of The Tall Ships Races.

And that’s on top of the recent announcement that the Dutch three-masted schooner is on the way, as reported in the Sunderland Echo last month.

The list of ships which have confirmed their attendance at Sunderland is growing fast.

Others which are on the way include the Lord Nelson; the Atyla; the Maybe; the Eendracht; the Hartlepool-based Black Diamond of Durham; and the Sorlandet.

Watch out for updates in the Sunderland Echo and at the Tall Ships Sunderland website at www.tallshipssunderland.com/

Sunderland’s City of Culture bid needs you: Team of 21 champions sought to lead the charge



Do you have what it takes to shout about Sunderland?

The hunt has begun to find 21 Mackems of all ages to fly the flag for Wearside as part of the UK City of Culture 2021 bid.

The community champions will liaise with the Bid Team to make sure as many voices as possible are heard when it comes to shaping the city’s cultural future.

It was recently announced that Sunderland had made the shortlist of five cities for the coveted title, the winner of which will be announced in December.

The team are now putting together the second stage bid and are hoping the 21 volunteers will help to reflect the city’s passion.

Rebecca Ball, director of Sunderland’s 2021 City of Culture bid, said: “We were obviously thrilled to be one of only five cities to go through to the next stage and we’re already working hard on putting together the all-important second stage bid document.

“We want to make sure we hear as many voices as possible, that we understand what people and communities want to see in the bid and in our artistic programme if we’re successful.

More ships ahoy for the 2018 races in Sunderland



12:36pm 8th August 2017

Two more ships have pledged their support for The Tall Ships Races in Sunderland 2018.

UK-registered James Cook and Belgian vessel Rupel have both confirmed they will be adding to the spectacular event taking place in and around the Port of Sunderland from 11th - 14th July next year.

James Cook, operated by Ocean Youth Trust North (OYTN) is based in North Shields.

OYTN is a charity which specialises in the personal development of young people and adults through the unique medium of ocean sailing. The 70-foot ocean-going yacht was designed and built on the Tyne in 1997 for the Ocean Youth Club by apprentices from British Shipbuilders, later to become Swan Hunters.

During her lifetime she has taken over 9,000 young people, most of them form the North East, for a sailing adventure.

I am hoping for something like this but no doubt the council will make a mess of it.

Yes something like this will be excellent,---and it could be,--I'm thinking there will be nice wide areas for visitors along side the National Glass Centre and further up the Riverside,---also there will be Ships berthed on the South side too,---and if they are to berth some Ships inside the Port--they will have to have some hard standing areas,---so hopefully they have it all organised,--btw,--that photo is great,--cheers.

TEN more ships sign up for Tall Ships Sunderland 2018



Ten more ships, including another three stunning Class A vessels, have pledged their support for The Tall Ships Races Sunderland 2018.

And the new additions brings the total of registrations for next year’s spectacle to 21.

The tall ship Esprit.

The newly enlisted ships include Wylde Swan, Alexander von Humboldt II, Morgenster , Helena, Spaniel, Black Diamond of Durham, Esprit, Vahine, Offshore Scout and Ocean Scout .

Wylde Swan is a ship built for speed and is also the largest two-mast topsail schooner in the world. Officials describe her as built to win races, cross oceans and be sailed with passion.

The crew are very proud to have been overall race winner and winner of the Friendship Trophy in 2011. T

News of the new sign-ups came from Sunderland City Council who said the aim of all participating vessels was to provide as many young people as possible, the opportunity to take part in the adventure of a lifetime.

This is truly great to hear. The fact that these ships have confirmed so far ahead of the event is great recognition of the work that is already underway to make next year’s races one of the biggest celebrations the region has ever seen

PFA gives its backing to Sunderland’s Tall Ships Races



The organisation which backs footballers in England is supporting Sunderland’s 2018 Tall Ships spectacle. The Professional Footballers’ Association has pledged its backing to next year’s Wearside leg of the races. The PFA is backing the tall ships sail trainee programme in Sunderland. The PFA is backing the tall ships sail trainee programme in Sunderland. And PFA director of education Patrick Lally visited the city to find out more. He watched as the campaign - to find sail trainees to enjoy voyages on majestic tall ships - officially got under way at Sunderland Yacht Club. He revealed how the PFA is hoping to choose a former North East player to sign up as a budding sailor. The hope is that an ex-footballer from a club such as Sunderland or Newcastle United could learn new skills which could stand them in good stead in their years after the game. We have got approximately 4,000 current members and 50,000 former members and we do whatever we possibly can to assist those members in whatever way, shape or form we have available Patrick Lally Patrick told the Echo: “It is a pleasure for the PFA to be asked to participate in such an event.

TV ‘star’ is coming to Sunderland for the 2018 Tall Ships Races



A ship which has appeared on a hit TV show is coming to Sunderland for The Tall Ships Races. The impressive Christian Radich becomes the 21st ship to sign up for next year’s Wearside leg of the races, from Wednesday July 11, until Saturday, July 14, 2018. The 80-year-old vessel has starred in the BBC TV series The Onedin Line as well as the movie Windjammer. The three-masted Tall Ships Races favourite, from Oslo in Norway, was a huge hit with crowds when she came to Hartlepool in 2010, especially when she contested the top spots for awards. She has had a long and illustrious career. Christian Radich functioned as a sail training ship when she started life in 1937 and that role continued to 1998. More recently, she has served as a school ship for the Norwegian Navy, and she is still a school ship for maritime students in winter. But during the summer, she offers voyages for school classes, as well as taking part in the Tall Ships’ Races.
