Noakes Sydney Gold Coast Race update

The Cruising Yacht Club of Australia (CYCA) has been closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation in NSW, particularly Sydney.

The situation is fluid, and planning for our races, particularly the upcoming Noakes Sydney Gold Coast Yacht Race (SGCYR) and Audi Centre Sydney Blue Water Pointscore (BWPS) schedule, is made difficult due to the Pandemic worsening in Greater Sydney. The outbreak has occurred during the immediate lead up to one of the Club’s most important events. We thank our entrants for their understanding as the Club considers all options.

Having analysed information regarding the listing and delisting of hotspots, it is thought that it is unlikely that we will be able to race to the Gold Coast in the next month and it is also possible that we may be precluded from conducting the alternate NSW course included in the Notice of Race. 

As our competitors would expect, the Club will endeavour to schedule the program when we are able to do so.
