What a magnificent sight. The Tall Ships put on a fantastic spectacle as they left Northumberland this afternoon.

Our slideshow of pictures by John Tuttiett Photography captures the climax to the four-day extravaganza, when more than 20 vessels hoisted their sails to leave Port of Blyth and set off for the 500-nautical-mile journey to Gothenburg in Sweden.

The Parade of Sail took them down the coast to St Mary's Island and then out to see for the 18-day journey.
