The 2020 Noakes Sydney Gold Coast Yacht Race, a major lead-up event prior to the Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race, has been rescheduled to start in October.
Previously scheduled to commence in late July, the 384-nautical-mile Noakes Sydney Gold Coast had to be rescheduled due to COVID-19-related restrictions and concerns.
The 2020 Noakes Sydney Gold Coast is now due to start on Saturday, 3 October, as the second race in the Cruising Yacht Club of Australia's highly regarded Audi Centre SydneyBlue Water Pointscore Series.
This announcement, it is hoped, will form part of a wider calendar of rescheduled and adjusted events for the Cruising Yacht Club of Australia (CYCA) in 2020, to be confirmed as early as the end of May - but always dependent on Government advice and restrictions.
"We are incredibly pleased to be able to announce a provisional start date for the rescheduled 2020 Noakes Sydney Gold Coast Yacht Race," CYCA Commodore Paul Billingham said.
