The Sea Safety Group is an non-governmental organisation with it's headquarters in the UK.

An important role of the group is the number of coastal surveillance stations in which volunteers give up a few hours a week to keep a visual watch on coastal waters in support of search and rescue operations. They also monitor all distress channels on VHF radio. These volunteers assist and report directly to H.M. Coastguard.

The volunteers receive "on the watch" training in the basics of visual and radio watch keeping, reporting, simple ship recognition and the understanding of navigational terms and charts. None of this is demanding, it just requires an appreciation of the sea and those who use it.

Volunteers Needed : If you are interested in becoming a Volunteer Watchkeeper, please get in touch using the contact details below, or contact your local Station directly. You will be made very welcome.

We are always looking to open new Stations in all parts of the UK. If you want further information contact us via our e mail address :
