Incident - Kitesurfer In Difficulty
Our 20th anniversary year has just seen the busiest summer ever!! Due in part to increased duty hours and the good weather, our watchkeepers logged a total of 7,947 vessel movements passing our lookout during July and August. Those movements comprised of:- Leisure - 6801, Commercial - 1045, Safety - 99 and Military - 2.
Yesterday (7 Sep) our Volunteers at Exmouth NCI had a visit from two members of the South East Devon Habitat Regulations Partnership. Habitat Mitigation Officers Amelia Davies and Sama Euridge visited the lookout to take a look at our view of the River Exe and Dawlish Warren habitats. Their prime function is to regulate and reduce the human impact on our Special Protection Areas on the river. They also monitor unruly marine behaviour and safety issues so we will have a close working relationship as our function of water safety will crossover with theirs.
