Exmouth National Coastwatch Institution (NCI) member Jonas Clay , pictured here on the left, was presented with a certificate and epaulettes after he qualified as watchkeeper.

He is the latest of a number of recent volunteers to complete their watchkeeping training course and pass an assessment.

Zan Nye, on the right, was presented with a badge for completing five years of service to Exmouth Coastwatch.

Barry Davis, Exmouth National Coastwatch Institution spokesman, said new volunteers were always welcome to join the coastwatch members. He said: “Additional volunteers help to enable Exmouth Coastwatch to continue the new summer regime of increased watch times, and thereby provide greater safety for those using the beach and estuary throughout the year.”

Exmouth Coastwatch said it now provides mariners with radio checks, gives current weather and tide times, swell, and local facilities information, via

VHF Radio Channel 65.
