TS5C Sponsored Athlete
The flagship fund has already benefited over 130 young athletes from Somerset in a variety of sports. TS5C sponsored athletes have already achieved significant results at both County and National level, and have competed for Team GB in international competitions.

I have had to come home from University, so my sister Bettine and myself have been cycling and running to keep our fitness up everyday!

Bettine Harris has spent her summer doing as much sailing as possible, starting off by representing Great Britain in the 420 at the world championships in Vilamoura, Portugal. Bettine and her sailing partner Megan Ferguson sailed successfully in strong winds to finish 24th overall in the ladies fleet against 70 other boats.

Bettine Harris and her sailing partner Megan Ferguson have continued to work on their partnership in the 420 dinghy and have been training hard in the British Youth Squad and competing around the country through the Winter months.

Siblings Jamie (17) and Bettine Harris (15) from Kings of Wessex Academy and Bristol Corinthian Yacht Club have just returned from over 5 weeks of international sailing competition.

TS5C Supported Siblings Jamie and Bettine Harris have been selected to represent Great Britain at the International 420 World Championships to be held in Newport Rhode Island this August.

Bettine Harris with her helm Megan Ferguson have qualified to represent GBR sailing at the 420 dinghy European championships in Portugal and World Championships in Newport Rhode Island, USA.

Bettine is a 14 year old sailor from Axbridge who has just been selected for RYA 420 National Youth Squad.

She is currently sailing a double handed 420 class dinghy with Megan Ferguson and they are both training hard with the ambition of being selected for the Summer 2018 championships.
