Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge, enjoyed an adventurous day out, where she took part in sailing activities and met with sailing teams from both the UK and New Zealand.


Today the Duchess made an appearance at the Sail Grand Prix (Sail GP) at Trinity Pier in Plymouth and took part in a Commonwealth Race alongside Britain's Team, as well as taking part in activities that promote sustainability.

Duchess Catherine's look for the day was suitably nautical and a big departure from the glamorous Kate Middleton dresses we're used to seeing on the Duchess.

The Duchess of Cambridge  sported an on-trend navy blue sweater with nautical stripes for the occasion and white linen shorts with gold button detailing from designer Holland Taylor, along with her favorite sneaker brand - Superga.

Kate's trainers are often bought from this simple Italian brand, and the 'Cotu' variety are perfect for an active day out like this.
