Or
For those that are colour blind, Black jack is red and next to the yellow sea.

Yep you are right, they are divers ... and lots of them. Normally 2 divers will use one of these to aid surfacing and to tell boats where they are. If you see one of these with no dive boat nearby ... they may need a lift back to the shore as they may be lost or swept away!!!! Otherwise stay clear.

Anyone know what's going on here then ?

A rectangle of buoys between Brixham and Elbery cove, been here as long as I can remember but still don't know what they are for.

Where there are gaps the barrels have sunk below the water and need pumping up again
