New Caledonia Long Term Anchorage

I would like to leave my boat (6ft draft) near Noumea for the month of September but all marinas are full. Does anybody have good experience/recommendations of leaving yachts anchored (or moored) for long term in New Caledonia.

I haven't 'left' my boat unattended at anchor in Noumea, but was aboard her twice at anchor, years apart in the month of September. Your biggest challenge will be finding the space, but as I recall this was only an issue for me because I jockeyed for a spot close in. Possibilities exist for anchoring a bit farther away from the marina access. A six foot draft should not be a problem, but check your charts for confirmation. Aside from a few occasions when wind may have peaked at 18-20 knots in the anchorage, it was pretty benign. But, that was then and only my experience. Others may vary. Good luck, Noumea is a favourite of mine.
