Another day, another superhuman act of greatness from Kate Middleton. This time, Kate (in J Brand jeans and a striped Me and Em top, a favorite dress-down look of hers reprised from those Olympic days) and Will raced against each other in a definitely-not-rigged sailing competition while visiting New Zealand's America's Cup team in Auckland Harbor. After soundly beating Will in two races around the harbor, Kate threw him a glorious sorry-I'm-not-sorry victory shrug and demounted, pulling her perfect pony out into perfect waves with nary a ponytail holder crimp in sight because her hair has magical powers.
In race captured on video below, you can watch her slow-mo racing at minute 1:40 and joking with Wills at minute 2:50.
