The aim of tug towing is to emulate real ship handling assisted with tugs within confined harbour spaces. In common with the real world a berth in a harbour is set up with buoyed channel markers to be navigated without collision.Tug towing has an international following with many national and international events.
For those interested in competing there are tug towing competitions held during the year. Please see the News & Events page for more information.
