We have been involved in a swim-to-survive programme at our local pool.  The boys have done contact tows, using poles & ropes for rescuing, treading water & swimming while fully clothed (not at all easy!)

We learnt that it is very important to be low when saving someone from the land so we don't get pulled into the water.
