The 2019 Noakes Sydney Gold Coast has officially drawn to a close, with the final boat in the fleet making her way to Main Beach this morning.

The Army Sailing Club's Gun Runner was the final boat to finish, at 0926hrs.

"It was pretty benign conditions for most of the race, we were becalmed for almost a full day but were greeted by the southerly yesterday which meant we were able to catch up a lot of time on the other boats that had already finished," said skipper Reece Young.

"This is out third Sydney Gold Coast race and we completed it in the fastest time we have ever done which is fantastic."

Jan Koudelka, one of the crew onboard Gun Runner and competing in his first ever ocean race, was blown away by the experience of competing.

"It was pretty spectacular and challenging, even though the skipper said it was calm conditions it was certainly a roller coaster for me at times. I had to brace myself a couple of times during the race while I was on the helm but it was a really amazing experience," said Koudelka.

"It was a bit of a National Geographic trip, there were dolphins glowing in the dark at night, orca and humpback whales putting on a show. It was fantastic."

The 2019 Noakes Sydney Gold Coast was labelled an outstanding experience by Noakes Group Managing Director Sean Langman.

"This year's Noakes Sydney Gold Coast was once again a great success," Langman says.

"The 2019 Noakes Sydney Gold Coast had the biggest fleet in a decade or so, a smooth but exciting trip north and some great engagement with fans and sailors both on and off the water.

"We couldn't be happier and can't wait for next year's race."
