NCI St Ives – Eyes alongside the coast… St Ives Coastguard station – This website features a climate station for todays climate and a webcam in St Ives Cornwall.
Through the early 1990s, Her Majesty’s Coastguard was withdrawn from coastal watch stations. Following the drowning of two native fishermen inside view of an area lookout, the Nationwide Coastwatch Establishment was shaped in 1994. Established as a charity, its sole function was the re-instatement and operation of the coastal watch. Inside the first eighteen months, seventeen NCI stations had been opened and 96 life threatening incidents reported. There at the moment are fifty NCI stations round our coast supported solely by public donation.
