Royal Tay talk

A LARGE number of Royal Tay Yacht Club members and guests attended Fort William House last Wednesday evening for an illustrated talk on the Bell Rock Lighthouse.

First lit in February 1811, this famous local marine landmark is this year celebrating its 200th birthday.

Colin Easton, curator of the Bell Rock Signal Museum in Arbroath, kept his audience enthralled with facts, figures and statistics of the lighthouse’s construction and history. He was welcomed by club commodore Pete Toms and held everyone’s interest with a large number of slides, many showing original drawings and plans.

Ron Lorimer, who organised the evening, proposed thanks and all left with a greater appreciation of just what was involved to make the local sailing water safer.
