A BUSY WEEKEND FOR NCI EXMOUTH

8th July 2019. The team at the National Coastwatch Institution Exmouth station have had a busy weekend with three incidents in two days.

A spokesperson from NCI Exmouth described the incidents. “ We had a knock on the door of our lookout from a member of the public to alert us to a lady who had fallen on the beach and broken her collarbone. Our Watchkeepers contacted the RNLI Beach lifeguards and they called for Entonox, which was passed from Exmouth ALB. An ambulance attended and conveyed the casualty to hospital".

Then our watchkeepers spotted a small speedboat which was unseaworthy and overcrowded. They were concerned for the welfare of the male occupants and contacted the coastguard. Exmouth Inshore Lifeboat intercepted the vessel and spoke to the occupants, none of who were wearing lifejackets, and gave them safety advice.

The next day we received a call from a concerned member of the public about a vessel travelling from Poole who had contacted him by phone to say his main sail rigging had broken and he was drifting, believing he was near Exmouth. Solent coastguard was contacted, all the relevant contact information was passed on and assistance was rendered. The vessel was eventually located near St. Agnes by the coastguard”.
