Prince William and Kate Middleton took to the water in Auckland aboard two Emirates Team New Zealand America’s Cup monohulls. The royal couple “separated” to compete in a kind of match race: in fact, they are both avid sailors. Of the two, surely Kate seemed the one most comfortable aboard, thanks to her years of sailing the Solent with her family, and she immediately took the helm flanked by Dean Barker, skipper of Team New Zealand. William, on the other hand, accompanied by Grant Dalton seemed a bit clumsy in handling the maneuvers on board. But watch the video to see who won the challenge!
