We are excited and pleased to announce the in-augural Capricorn Challenge – Formula 18 South Pacific Championships 2014 to be held on New Calendonia – Noumea.
Noumea was the birth place of the original Capricorn – arguably the biggest step forward in F18 after the Hobie Tiger. All F18 since Martin Fisher created the Capricorn have been just improvements and developments from that ground breaking design.
The event is organised by Catamaran Club Nouméa (CCN) and is OPEN TO ALL F18 CLASS BOATS
The plan is for 5 days of racing – 3 days of traditional Windward – Leeward, followed by a 2 RAID up and down the coast.
We are in the process of securing a sponsor both from Noumea and Australia. At this time transport will be two weeks there and back.
The planned dates are 30th August – 1st week of September, 7th September.
The container for travel to this event will be packed at PSA on August 7th, boats will be returned by mid September.
Freight from Sydney to Noumea, return $1500 per boat ( no taxes, duties etc )
Boats will leave 2 weeks before the event and return to Sydney 2 weeks after the event.
Hotel – $680 to $900 per week.
Flights – $500 return per person from Sydney.
