Tow Lines for whitewater and sea kayaking

A tow line is a rescue aid that is normally used to tow another boat, either during a rescue when a paddler has entered the water and the boat needs moving, or to tow a weak paddler when they are too tired, are injured or just need a little extra help. Generally towlines will be mounted on a quick release belt- if the tower gets in to trouble or needs to release the towee quickly, the quick release buckle can be pulled and the belt and line will fall away.


River and general purpose towlines tend to be in the 3-5m range and are designed for use with Whitewater and general purpose kayaks. Sea Kayaking towlines are normally longer, between 10 and 20 metres to accomodate the length of a sea kayak, and also to offer the option of longer tow's.
