Queensland - New Caledonia on cyclon season

Hi, we are discussing the possibility to sail from Fraser Island to New Caledonia on January. Has anyone done it? Is it too dangerous considering cyclons?

Well date wise end of Jan is peak time for cyclones so I suspect nobody could recommend it.

Unless you are on a fast motorboat.

times two for not going at that time. Peak season for cyclones. I would expect that you would be close to or the only sail boat out there during that time.

750 NM. Against the South Caledonia Jet current. Prevaling winds average Force 4 on the nose. Can you make it within an safe forecast window of 4 - 5 days?
