Day Three of the Tall Ships Races in Sunderland

It's been an exciting week in Sunderland's cultural calendar as the city hosts the opening leg of this year's Tall Ships Races.

Join us on our live blog as we head into day three. We'll be bringing live updates from all of the day's events - including photos and videos too! Don't forget to share your own messages and pictures with us as the event continues. You can catch up on what you've missed with our blogs from DAY ONE here and DAY TWO here. Today's entertainment will be running late into the evening with an exciting aerial display, high above the River Wear.

Welcome to our day three blog.
