Incident - Yacht Aground
From The Other Side
Our thanks to Bryn, the skipper of the yacht 'Rebecca', who over the last month has embarked members of Exmouth Coastwatch to take a look at the coastline from the sea instead of vice versa from the Tower. All were given the opportunity to take the helm, a new experience for some, in varied weather conditions with watchkeepers in the Tower looking on with great interest!!
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.
