Brisbane Noumea Race 2020 / 850nm / 27 May – 6 June 2020
10 DAYS / CAT 1 OCEAN RACE
The 850nm Brisbane to Noumea Race is a fantastic ocean race that takes us from the start line in Moreton Bay, Brisbane Australia, to the finish in Noumea in beautiful French New Caledonia, the doorstep to some of the remotest and most beautiful anchorages in the world. This race is organised and conducted by the Royal Queensland Yacht Squadron with the co-operation of Cercle Nautique Caledonien.
After clearing Moreton Bay, yachts won’t sight land again until they see the Amadee Light south of the capital of New Caledonia, Noumea and whilst the fringing reefs of New Caledonia can be tricky the crews will know that the reception they get at the Cercle Nautique Caledonian will be warm and welcoming.
This race feeds into the start of the 654 nautical mile Groupama Race around the biggest lagoon in the world; the island of New Caledonia, which is popular with local boats and those Kiwi and Aussie sailors staying on for the next ocean challenge.
Promo New Caledonia, Pacific heart
A land of contrasts blending exotic Oceanian culture and French sophistication, New Caledonia presents an unrivalled range of landscapes, cultures and activities. Turquoise lagoons, white sandy beaches, red-soiled wilderness, lush mountains and golden plains co-exist in a gentle sub-tropical climate.
