On Tuesday 11th July 2017, it will be one year until The Tall Ships Races Sunderland 2018. 

Here at The Tall Ships Project Office we plan to celebrate and publicise this as much as possible and a key activity in the celebrations will be a social media thunderclap.

The idea is that as many people as possible show their support by posting simultaneous social media messages on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram at exactly

10.00am on Tuesday 11 July 2017

marking the exact time that the event site will open on July 11 2018. Exciting!!

We are asking everyone to post a positive message that celebrates one year to go.  The message should include the text:  #wearonboard  @TallShipsSund  #TSR2018 to ensure we get our message trending.

Feel free to use your imagination and bring your post to life – the team will be looking out for the best Tall Ships related puns! You can also use the images below to add to your post!

So get on board and join the Tall Ships crew on this exciting voyage!
