place. Because of her size, Stormvogel had been corrected to forty-first on handicap. Bob Rusk had steered Salacia to eighteenth overall. The following year Balandra finished second on handicap to Fidelis, with Cadence taking line honours in a race of mainly light-airs and variable winds, however, Jock had decided not to compete. Balandra went on to represent Australia in the successful Admiral's Cup winning team of 1967. She was still sailing in Sydney-Hobart events as recently as 1989, her sixteenth blue water classic. The 25-year-old sloop is owned and sailed by Gerd Hennicke [as of 1990], who has had Balandra in mint condition for the past nine years.
