Tony Hamerton (Supporters Manager)
Tony is Managing Director of Rhino Security, a company he formed eighteen years ago, based in Norwich. Prior to that he spent fourteen years in the retail motor trade holding a number of senior management positions mostly in London and the southeast.
Having learnt to sail at school in North Devon he got caught up in the early '70s windsurfing fever competing in several national events. On returning to Norfolk with his wife Carolyn and two young children he became a member of the Norfolk Broads Yacht Club sailing his father-in-law's Yeoman No 4 with modest success. He also spent two years on the club committee.
Both children are keen sailors, with James becoming Nation Laser 3000 Champion two years running.
Tony says "When I first stepped onto Excelsior I could feel and almost smell her history. She is a wonderful and exciting 'Old Lady' who needs all our care and support so that we can pass on her charm for the benefit of generations to come."
