13th August – Beach event at Goodrington .. completed 21st August – Clinic at MDL Marina Brixham September – plan for Clinic at MDL Marina Torquay
13 August Beach Report from CSO John Turner:
We did over a hundred interventions, mostly sups, inflatables and beach activity re off-shore winds etc This does not include the education stuff and badges issued to children which must also be 100+
We also received over £100 in donations. Bearing in mind this is a proper family beach without much on the water it was a great result so thanks again.
1-2-1 Water Safety Interactions – JULY 2021
Our Torbay Coastal Water Safety Team completed 893 interactions in July.
83 PWC (personal water craft)
307 SUPs (stand up paddle boards)
10 dog walkers
2 shore anglers
NOTE: These figures include those achieved at an event we ran at the entrance to Broadsands and Elberry Cove, but the rest (600+) were achieved by the Water Safety Team by just getting out there!
