ANCHORS AWEIGH: The Duchess of Cambridge joined Sir Ben Ainslie, a four-time Olympic gold medalist, in Portsmouth, England on Thursday on a visit to a new sailing complex at The Camber in Old Portsmouth. The young royal, whose second child is due in April, is a patron of the 1851 Trust, which promotes sailing and the marine industry and is backing Britain’s bid for the America’s Cup. The duchess, who wore a white Max Mara coat over a Somerset by Alice Temperley dress, met with Ainslie to see the work and progress at the complex. She took part in a painting session, adding to a mural created by local artists. The duchess is no stranger to sailing: She crewed a Round the World Challenge boat in the Solent, near the Isle of Wight, before attending university, and worked as a deck hand when she was a student. During a royal visit to New Zealand in April last year, the duchess and Prince William raced two America’s Cup sailing boats in Auckland and she beat her husband 2-0. On Thursday, Kate also made an appearance at Spinnaker Tower in Gunwharf Quays, and met with community leaders, teachers and students and teachers from Southampton City College.
