Watchkeepers keeping an eye on the channel, and boat users entering/leaving the estuary, will notice that the Exe Buoy is missing!! It broke free and was washed out to sea last Tuesday (13 Feb), with one of our alert watchkeepers reporting it to Solent CG. See Local NTM.
Postscript: The buoy has been found washed up on Seaton beach, somewhat worse for wear!!
