Exmouth Coastwatch members have increased watchkeeping times; from now until the end of October 2018, the team will cover the west end of Lyme Bay, Dawlish Warren, the mouth of the River Exe and sourrounding beaches from 9am until 6pm, seven days a week. During July and August’s summer season, the hours are extended from 08.30am until 7pm.

New volunteers are always welcome to help keep the vital service going. Watchkeepers are kept updated with annual refresher courses and continuous training in VHF Radio and chartwork.

Barry Davis, Exmouth NCI spokesman, said: “In 2017 Exmouth Coastwatch handled over 30 incidents – the third busiest Coastwatch station out of 50 around the English and Welsh coastline, which illustrates the importance of keeping our eyes, ears and voices alert to what is going on around our coastal area.”
