    Records on line in PONANT Sydney Noumea Yacht Race

    The Cruising Yacht Club of Australia has postponed the start of the club’s comeback PONANT Sydney Noumea Yacht Race to 9am Sunday June 3, 2018, due to forecasted wind and sea state. It is expected the 20-hour delay will give the complex dominant low pressure system in the Tasman Sea time to move east, and for the corresponding strong winds and sea state to abate.
