David and Justine
Olsen sent me this information about their towing courses and there's
also a link to Tow-Ed who run towing courses in a number of places.
Education Courses are available for those who wish to learn to tow
safely. Towing can be a way to enjoy your favourite pastime, whether it
be taking the boat to a new fishing spot, getting your horse to
competition or caravanning across the country. To tow with safety and
confidence, a few basic skills need to be learned first.
