About the Race

The PONANT Noumea yacht Race will return in 2024.

Following a sojourn of over 20 years, the Cruising Yacht Club of Australia had re-introduced the 1,064 nautical mile PONANT Sydney Noumea Yacht Race in 2018.

In a successful return of the race, Seb Bohm's Rogers 46 Smuggler won overall honours, while Michael Martin's TP52 Frantic won Line Honours. 

After the COVID-19 pandemic forced the cancellation of the 2020 and 2022 editions, the PONANT Sydney Noumea will return on Saturday 25 May 2024.

The race is organised and conducted by the CYCA, with the co-operation of the Cercle Nautique Caeldonien.
