Dr Andrew Pinder (Webmaster)
Formerly a research physicist and chartered electronic engineer, Andrew left his career in academia to become a film & tv producer/director. Together with Excelsior trustee Paul Thomas , he runs production company wideangles.tv . He blames Paul for getting him involved with "Excelsior" when they made their first film about her in 2000; he has lost count of how many films he has made since. Like Nelson, Andrew learnt to sail on the Broads, little realising that one day he would come to live in this beautiful part of the world. Yachtmaster, Fastnet Race veteran, and dinghy instructor, Andrew says he would not like to have to chose between yachts or his much-loved Wayfarer dinghy. This sentiment is echoed by his eldest son Robbie, who together with youngest son Ted and long-suffering wife Rachel, share most of his adventures.
