The bustling port town in South East Northumberland played host to the four-day long prestigious Tall Ships Regatta. Up to 30 of the largest and most spectacular ships in the world, some up to 100 metres long and decades old attended the event from Norway, Portugal, Belgium, Poland, the Netherlands and the UK before they finally depart on a 500 nautical mile race from Blyth to the Swedish port of Gothenburg.
The maritime celebration takes place during the 60th anniversary of the Tall Ships Races.
