Following several training sessions of theory and on the job training, station manager, Ivor Jones, presented newly qualified volunteer watchkeepers Keith Flack, Andy Paterson and Ian Fasham with their certificates of achievement following successful assessment.

They are joining the second busiest National Coastwatch station in Exmouth which is open 365 days a year watching over the safety of vessels, swimmers, boarders, surfers, kayakers, rowers and our visitors to the beaches and waters of Exmouth.
