The start of the Tall Ships race from Falmouth to Greenwich, London.
The 44-strong fleet taking part in the Falmouth to Royal Greenwich Tall Ships Regatta lines up for a Parade of Sail in Falmouth Bay on Sunday.

Almost half of the vessels competing in the regatta are members of the Association of Sail Training Organisations (ASTO), the UKs Sail Training umbrella organisation.

ASTO has vessels from all over the British Isles taking part including Scotland, Wales, East Anglia and the South of England, and at least half of the trainees on board each boat will be under 25.

Over 280 young people from a wide range of backgrounds are sailing on board 19 boats operated by ASTO members.

It is the first time a Tall Ships Race has both started and finished in a UK port and the fleet is expected to arrive in London on Thursday or Friday.
