Dart Weather Station
MOUTH OF THE DART - Froward Point
This chart comes from Froward Point Coastal watch station. Over 50 trained and qualified volunteer watchkeepers share daylight watches operating every day of the year. Watchkeepers observe activity throughout the sea area of the above panoramic picture and log identified vessels. The station is equipped with telescopes, radar, radio, telephone and weather instrumentation as well as up to date charts.
Through close cooperation with the Maritime Coastguard Agency (MCA), NCI at Froward Point earned its "Declared Facility Status" in 2007, enabling us to become an integral part of the National Search and Rescue structure.
