Over the course of the races, from July 11 to July 14, there will be a number of cruises, lasting up to two-and-a-half hours, which will take you past the Roker Pier and Lighthouse and out into the North Sea for a memorable Tall Ships sailing experience.

And we’ve teamed up with Sail Royal Greenwich to give away 15 pairs of tickets for a cruise of your choice, worth more than £100 a pair.

From your ship you will have the opportunity to see many of the largest participants including the stunning Mir and Christian Radich, which are true ‘Cathedrals of the Sea’.

During the cruise a mixture of sweet and savoury snacks will be served and there will be a bar, which takes cash payments. (Drinks are not included in the prize)

The cruises will depart on Wednesday, July 11 at 11.30am, 1.30pm, and 3.30pm, Thursday, July 12 at 11am, 1pm, 3pm, and 5pm; Friday, July 13 at 11.30am, 1.30pm, 3.30pm, and 5.30pm and Saturday, July 14 at 12noon.

Prices for the cruises are £59.90 for adults, £54.90 for 65s and over and students and £39.90 for under 15s.
