Sailing prodigy's sponsorship bid
A SAILING prodigy needs help to achieve his dream of taking part in the 2020 Olympic games.
Harry Chatterton, 11, wants to become a Team GB star of the future after being inspired by this year’s London Olympic and Paralympic games.
The Phillip Morant School pupil sails a Cadet racing dinghy designed for children up to the age of 17-years-old.
Having won various competitions, he and his helm, Sam Yale, 14, now have their sights set on the Cadet World Championship in Hobart, Tasmania.
They have already done well enough this year to make the cut for the prestigious race, and could be the youngest competitors there.
