Diving included for certified divers
Toby grew up by the harbour in Ramsgate, UK, and has been on the water virtually all of his life, with his father almost as passionate about sailing as Toby. We are really fortunate in having such an experienced and highly qualified Captain on board Lir.
Toby started his charter career in 2015 on Lir’s sister yacht and since then, with us throughout, he has worked hard to gain qualifications from Advanced Powerboat Instructor to RYA Yachtmaster, adding to his prior excellent record in dinghy racing.
He has now completed six Trans-Atlantic crossings with two of them as Captain of Lir and three as Captain of our sister-yacht. Toby genuinely enjoys sharing his enthusiasm and teaching guests more about sailing and water sport with everyone on board, whilst ensuring your safety and full enjoyment of the charter experience with Lir.
