Open Water Rescues & Towing

If you’re paddling farther from shore than you want to swim then knowing how to perform self and group rescues and how to tow a fellow paddler are essential skills.  Open Water Rescues & Towing will explore a variety of self rescue options and solidify an assisted rescue that will work in a variety of conditions.

Knowing how to safely tow a boat is the best way to keep a group together if a paddler becomes fatigued, ill or is just paddling at too slow a pace.  We’ll explore a range of towing options for different conditions.
