After a much-needed summer getaway, Kate Middleton is back in action! On Sunday morning, the Duchess of Cambridge made an appearance at a sailing event in Plymouth in support of 1851 Trust, a charity that uses sailing and the marine industry to inspire children in sports, education, and technology.

For the engagement, the royal style icon looked sporty in a striped shirt and white shorts with gold details. She wore her hair down in loose waves and paired her nautical ensemble with whiteSuperga plimsolls and simple gold jewelry.

During the outing, Kate—who is the Royal Patron of the non-profit—met with young people and learned about seagrass, a natural tool that is instrumental in countering damages caused by climate change. There, they also took part in making seagrass mats that are planned to be planted off the nearby Plymouth Sound to help improve marine health.

Afterward, the Duchess changed into an even more sporty ensemble and joined the Great Britain SailGP Team aboard their F50 foiling catamaran in a friendly "Commonwealth Race" against Team New Zealand. Also in attendance was Sir Ben Ainslie, who is considered the most successful sailor in Olympic history. She played crewmember for the British team and helped them as they raced their yacht against their rivals.

This isn't the first time Kate has taken part in a sailing race. Back in 2019, she and Prince William faced off in the King's Cup Sailing charity race on the Isle of Wight. The Duke of Cambridge's team came out in third place, while his wife's team was disqualified. Prior to that, the two also competed in a sailing race in 2014 in Auckland, New Zealand, where Kate emerged victorious.
