Kate Middleton ventured to Weymouth, England, today to watch Olympic sailing. She was on a boat, armed with binoculars, to see the women's Laser Radial competition. China's Xu Lijia won, while Kate's own Team GB's Alison Young came in fourth and the USA's Paige Railey was number six.
Kate was joined by her husband's aunt, Princess Anne, as well as Anne's husband, Sir Timothy Laurence, who has some familiarity with the water as a retired British naval officer. Kate's likewise demonstrated her own interest in aquatic sports. She practiced helming a dragon boat for a 2007 competition across the English Channel, though she had to drop out due to security concerns. During a stop on Prince Edward Island during her Canadian tour in 2011, Kate raced William in a dragon boat. William was the victor in that matchup.
