In 2002, Noonmark VI won racing class at Antigua Race Week, together with the Swan Caribbean Challenge trophy. When cruising, the yacht is easily handled by a crew of two, making good use of the Reckmann furling headsail system, powered winches and easily reefed main. Three people sailed her back to UK in 2006.Autumn 2006, Noonmark underwent some important upgrades, including: new rod standing rigging, new sails, new radar, new air conditioning system installed (she had not had any air co previously), full service of safety gear, new Fleet 33 system, and other improvements. In winter 2006 she did the ARC starting from Gran Canaria in late November crossing to St Lucia, finishing second in RORC Racing Division and winning the Swan Transatlantic Trophy. After a season in the Caribbean she went through the Panama canal and crossed the Pacific to Australia arriving November 2007. She sailed in the Sydney Hobart race. In August 2008 she sailed in Hamilton island race week. Thereafter she was laid up ashore in Sydney. In late December 2008 she was shipped from Australia to Florida, USA. In March 2009 she was shipped to the UK.In spring 2009 she had her topsides painted and her rig checked over. She spent the summer in the UK racing and cruising (including the Swan European Regatta and the Fastnet Race). She then sailed to the Med to compete in St Tropez at Les Voiles October 2009. In 2010 she returned to Antigua in the Caribbean for the winter.May / June 2010 she has relocated to Newport prior to the Bermuda Race in which she participated. She then returned to Newport. November / December 2010 she has sailed to the Caribbean for the winter season.Built to DoT MCA charter specifications.
In 2013 the yacht has continued her winning ways, sailing at the Giraglia (7th in class out of 145); and in the Copa del Rey (7th out of 35 in very light airs).
August 2013 the yacht had her keel modified to designs by Hugh Welbourn. The keel was removed and new bulb fabricated. The draft is now reduced by approx 40 cm (from 3,4 to 3,0m). This will be better for cruising and also give an improved rating and yet should still improve performance. The work was done at Monaco Marine, Cogolin.
Noonmark has just arrived in the UK after completing the Transatlantic Race (July 2015)
