Noakes Group - supporting Australian yachting
Noakes Group is proud to support the Cruising Yacht Club of Australia, its members and fellow competitors by sponsoring the Noakes Sydney Gold Coast Yacht Race for a five year term, from 2018 through to the completion of the 2022 race.

- Complimentary collection and return service for vessels berthed at CYCA marina

The Noakes Group values are reflected not only through financial contribution as naming-rights sponsor of Australia's blue water classic yacht race, but also in the values that Noakes upholds daily throughout company operations.
