Jeff Allen - Throw Tow System

Jeff Allen is an aspiring BCU 5* coach and works for Sea Kayaking Cornwall. Over the past several years he has been designing and perfecting and new design for a rescue system particularly for sea kayaks.

It looks part tow line and part whitewater throw bag. It can be worn as a belt and it does triple duty as a tow system, a throw/rescue bag and a sea anchor.

Over the years I have seen many different homemade designs and I have got to say that this looks to be one of the best thought out systems I have seen in a long time. I agree with Dunks from Solent Sea Kayaking who wrote about it first. It isn’t pretty but it sure looks like it would function really well.

The video below can explain it much better than I can so I will let it do the talking.

The throw tow system retails between 72-80 GBP depending on the length of rope that you require and you can find more information including purchasing information via the Sea Kayaking Cornwall website.
