Duke And Duchess To Race Off Cowes This Summer

Prince William and wife Kate will be sailing off the Isle of Wight this summer, it has been revealed.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will race each other in the Solent.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will each skipper a yacht in a fleet of eight, in The Kings Cup challenge, sponsored by Landrover. Mike revealed he would have the Queen as captain and would also sign up his cousins Princes William and Harry, and William's sporty wife Kate. Members of the public can watch the race from the SailGP Race Village along Cowes foreshore, which is free to access and will include an 800-seater grandstand. The race's presenting partner is Land Rover.

"The Duke and Duchess are strong advocates for sport, and have undertaken work both in the United Kingdom and overseas to highlight the positive impact that sport can have on the individual and within local communities", reads The King's Cup official website.

These include Child Bereavement UK, Centrepoint, the London Air Ambulance Charity 30th Anniversary Campaign, and Tusk - four causes which the duke supports as patron.

"Their Royal Highnesses hope that The King's Cup will become an annual event, bringing greater awareness to the wider benefits of sport, whilst also raising support and funds for the causes that the Duke and Duchess support". The Duchess will support four of her patronages: Action on Addiction, Place2Be, the Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families, and The Royal Foundation in connection with Her Royal Highness's work on Early Years.

The race will be played on big screens throughout Cowes.

The King's Cup Regatta takes place just before Lendy Cowes Week, from 10-17 August, a sporting event that has taken place annually since 1826 and is one of the UK's largest and longest-running sporting events.

William and Kate, who have both championed the physical and mental benefits of sport and outdoors activities, will launch The King's Cup at the historic Cutty Sark tea clipper at London's Greenwich, Kensington Palace said.

William and Kate will then take part in a sailing race simulation and unveil The King's Cup.
