Our collection will be outside Sainsbury’s on Saturday 26th November, Sunday 27th and Monday 28th. So please support us  so we can assist you when in difficulty along our coast. Our Station in Tankerton Bay east of Tankerton Bay Sailing Bay Club  by the ramp down onto the promenade. You should come in and see us we always welcome the public. We are on Station every Saturday Sunday and Monday through out the year from 10:00 till 16:00 in the winter and from 10:00 till 17:00 in the summer.

So why not come along and find out more about what we do to keep you safe when out on the water. We are always looking for new recruits  – you never know you might find it interesting  like I did when I visited. I have now been a Watchkeeper for nearly 4 years.
