Tall ships head for Holland
More than 30 tall ships are setting off for Holland this afternoon as they take part in the North Sea Tall Ships Regatta. The race is from Hartlepool in England to the Dutch coastal town of IJmuiden.
The race is not to see which is the fastest boat but who can sail the furthest in 120 hours. It is up to the crew which course they take.
The tall ships are due to arrive in the Netherlands next Tuesday. On Thursday next week, they will sail together to the Dutch capital Amsterdam via the North Sea Canal for the nautical event Sail.
