Ponant Sydney Noumea Yacht Race

The Cruising Yacht Club of Australia (CYCA) has re-introduced the Sydney Noumea Yacht Race in 2018. The last time the Cruising Yacht Club of Australia (CYCA), home of the Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race, sent a race fleet to Noumea was back in 1991. That’s 26 years since George Snow’s Farr 65 Brindabella set the race record of 5 days, 21 hours and 35 minutes, one of the records Snow still holds nearly three decades on. With the right conditions, the expectation would be some of the more modern boats would have their eye on taking that place in the CYCA record books.

To be sponsored by PONANT and organised and conducted by the CYCA, with the co-operation of the Cercle Nautique Caledonian, the 1,064 nautical mile race will start on Sydney Harbour on a Saturday. The Sydney Noumea Yacht Race will be a Category 1 race and is more than 400nm longer than the Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race.
