Brisbane to Noumea Cruising Rally 2018


Take the hassle out of preparing and planning by joining a fleet of cruisers in June 2018 to beautiful French New Caledonia.

Conquer the 850nm to Noumea under the watchful eye of Club Race Control, after your safety systems have been reviewed to meet Cat 1, with Customs conveniently handled.

Parallel races are being run by CYCA from Sydney and RAYC from Auckland and the confluence in Noumea in early June promises a celebration of international proportions.  Perhaps a local fun race in the idyllic lagoon off Noumea with tri-nations competing would be a fitting end to the longest offshore race in the southern hemisphere and a fitting start to extended cruising to some of the remotest and most beautiful anchorages in the world.  

This event also supports our vast cruising fraternity. Select your weather window in the week prior and enjoy the security of safety scrutiny and radio schedules during your passage in company.

Owners and charterers of eligible Monohull and Multihull boats are invited to enter the Brisbane to Noumea Cruising Rally.

This race is organised and conducted by the Royal Queensland Yacht Squadron with the co-operation of Cercle Nautique Caledonien.

Yachts can leave anywhere between 23 May and 2 June 2018. 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 Cercle Nautique Caledonian will be warm and welcoming.
