Collaboration between Exmouth National Coastwatch institution (NCI) and The Water Safety Team at Exmouth lifeboat station has resulted in large print easy to access tide tables being placed in prominent locations along the beach and promenade.

This was prompted by the increase of tidal cuts offs recently to the east of Orcombe Point by those unfamiliar with the area.

The tables have been created by Zan Nye of NCI Exmouth and following discussions between the two organizations they will now be displayed not only outside Coastwatch house as previously but also in the following locations:

· The display cabinet on the Inshore Lifeboat house

· The south facing wall of Lifeboat station

· The window of the RNLI shop

· The rear of the lifeguard hut west of the lifeboat station

· At Sideshore by the serving hatch at the new Hangtime café

· On the wall of Edge Watersports

Zan said that she produced these timetables 'for the benefit of our local community and our visitors, to help ensure their safety as they walk around the beaches of Exmouth and around to Sandy Bay, as well as for our water users'.

The tables will be updated monthly and will include action to take in an emergency.

Anyone who sees somebody in danger or is in danger themselves should ring 999 or 112 and ask for the Coastguard.

NCI Exmouth is part of the UK Search and Rescue and is a Declared Asset of HM Coastguard .The lookout can be found above The Harbour View café on Queens Drive.

Volunteer watchkeepers are presently on duty from 8.30 – 18.30 seven days a week.
