The Northern Lighthouse Board kindly lent the use of their vessel NLV Pharos for use during LISW19. Pharos is a multi-use vessel essential to ensuring the safety critical work of the NLB can be carried out. Pharos arrived in London on the Saturday night ahead of LISW in style. Pipe Major Steven Duffy formerly of the Scots Guards, piped Pharos through Tower Bridge on the helideck to great applause from the crowds. During her time moored alongside HMS Belfast, Pharos hosted events for the Scottish Maritime Cluster, the Department for Transport, the Met Of ce, Maritime UK, Isle of Man Maritime and the London Sea Cadets. Pharos was also the location for a business report on Wednesday morning’s edition of BBC Breakfast, which highlighted the importance of the maritime sector and the signi cance and contribution made by maritime to the wider economy.
