16th August 2014 - 23rd August 2014

Following hard work from David 'Tids' Tidsball, a local businessman, Exmouth is delighted to host the 2014 National Lifesaving Event this summer.

The annual six-day championships celebrates and tests the fitness and skills of lifesavers of all ages, which are vital in order to save thousands of lives around Britain’s coastline.

Competitors in three age groups, aged seven and upwards, would compete in a variety of disciplines including two kilometre runs, a triathlon, swimming, relays and craft-based events.
