Drawings for this Jan H. Linge design are available at the Norwegian Maritime Museum.

5.5 AUS 3 - Info from Ted Dexter - 22.05.2011 by Kaspar Stubenrauch
I have owned "Kirribilli" for the last 5 years and am just completing her restoration; her launch is likely to be in the next month or so. I have a pretty complete set of her sails including all the orginal paper work to and from Jan Linge and RSYS.

KA 3 Kirribilli - 22.09.2010 by ryan godfrey
Kirribilli was owned by my father, Rex Godfrey, from approximately 1964 through to 1998. He bought her from RPAYC on Pittwater and trucked her over to Adelaide, SA and raced extensively at the RSAYS. Also layed a teak teak and built many custom deck fittings all branded 'Kirribilli KA3'. Ryan
KA-3 – KIRRIBILLI - 03.04.2010 by Matti Muoniovaara
The builder was Royal Sydney Yacht Squadron Boat yard. The name of the boat seems to be the place of the bulding site Kirribilli. The photo of the launch might be taken at the RSYS.
