Kate Middleton made a splash while visiting the Great Britain SailGP Team.

The Duchess of Cambridge arrived in Plymouth on the south coast of Devon in the United Kingdom today in a nautical outfit.

Middleton greeted fans upon her arrival in a white and blue striped sweater from Erdem, which she paired with white shorts that flared slightly at the hem.

The Holland Cooper shorts were slightly oversized, contrasting the more fitted nature of the sweater. Gold hardware decorated the shorts from the zippers to idle buttons that served a more decorative purpose rather than functional. Middleton changed halfway through her visit to Plymouth’s waters, slipping on a gray and black wetsuit with a neon orange helmet to keep her safe from the elements.

With such an activity-filled day, the Duchess needed comfortable sneakers. The first pair, which she wore with her casual outfit, are a go-to style for Middleton, from Superga UK. The white low-top sneakers are made with a breathable mesh fabric, perfect for a busy day by the sea.

The second pair, which she wore with her wetsuit, were black with aqua-blue laces that added a bright pop of color.
