In June 2018 the CYCA's PONANT Sydney Noumea Yacht Race will set off with a Blue Water Cruising Division opening up the trip to those who would prefer to enjoy a more relaxed journey into stunning South Pacific waters.
In order to help interested parties to prepare, the CYCA will be hosting information evenings presented by respected offshore sailors. These evenings could also take place at other clubs who have a group of boats keen to take part.
On top of the obvious busy social calendar, a Cruise to Noumea opens up a huge variety of options for anyone looking to take in the many idyllic locations of New Caledonia and the South Pacific. The timing of the event also aligns well with making a return leg to Australia for the Queensland winter events including the Sydney Gold Coast Yacht Race, Hamilton Island Race Week, Magnetic Island Race Week and the Brisbane to Keppel Tropical Yacht Race.
Participants of the PONANT Sydney Noumea Yacht Race will be eligible for Australian Sailing's Cruiser of the Year award. Please visit the CYCA PONANT Sydney Noumea Yacht Race website for more information.
