My name is toby merivale , i really enjoy my RYA dinghy sailing as my dad has taught me to be a far better sailer and how to teach RYA sailing instructing . I stand out as an RYA instructor as i have an eye of achievement with the adults & children i teach as i do a lot of teaching on land to start with so we go through how to rig and what all the different ropes are for then we come how to position your self when it comes to sailing then we do jibbing and turning the boat then i show them a how to dry capsize demo so when we go out on the water as a team i then get them to practise everything i have taught on land on the water so as i drive around helping each and everyone thats in my group lesson i get them so become the sailer that i'am in the weeks on the lessons as we go by and when there ready i teach them the race dinghy technics .
