Even bad weather couldn't stop Duchess Kate and Prince William from enjoying a day among the sailing community.

Despite heavy rain and 30 mph winds that cancelled the day's America's Cup competition in Portsmouth, England, the royal couple still took some time to meet with Britain's Land Rover BAR sailing team as well as meeting the children who benefit from the 1851 Trust, a non-profit that Kate is a patron of.

Although the parents left their children at home, they were presented with customized Land Rover BAR team shirts for Prince George, 2, and Prince Charlotte, 2 months.

The couple also paid a visit to the 1851 Trust, a non-profit that helps teach young people about sailing, especially those from underprivileged homes.

Although the couple could not watch the racing events due to the weather cancellation, they still presented medals to the British Land Rover BAR team, who was awarded first place based on their performance in the previous day of competition.

The outing was Kate's first official royal trip since giving birth to Princess Charlotte in May. She had previously made her first public appearance after giving birth at the Queen's Birthday Parade and also stepped out for Charlotte's christening in June.

The Duke and Duchess are themselves skilled sailors. Kate displayed her skills on the water in 2014, when she beat Prince William twice in a sailing race in Aukland, New Zealand.
