Ulladulla Harbour Classic, Saturday & Sunday 26 & 27 July

A fantastic event organized by the Milton Ulladulla Vintage & Classic Car Club.  Extra photos from Monnica Smith are on the Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/ISUZUCARCLUBofAustraliaInc

Our members gathered at the base of operations (Narrawallee) on Friday night and registered at the Mollymook Golf Club.  Next time (and there WILL be a next time), we’ll join the MUVCCC for their evening programme as well as their excellent daytime shows & drives.

 

 

Saturday & Sunday morning at the Harbour we felt very welcome among the many other classic cars.  Many came to look at the 4 Belletts including Jimmy’s new sedan making it’s club debut, quite a few reminiscing about owning one in “the day”, or a relative’s car.  But we also met a couple of current owners that we hope will join in our club activities.  All entrants were invited to vote for their favourite car and it was a terrific result when Jimmy took out 3rd in this competition!

The Saturday drive started at 10.30 with cars leaving at a relaxed pace.  Navigation sheets were handed out on the start line and were very easy to follow.  We visited all the best sites around Ulladulla with plenty of opportunity to stop safely for sightseeing.   Just 3 easy questions to answer, left me wondering how the competition would be decided.  After the “comfort stop” we were given the next navigation sheet that took us around Mollymook, Bannister Head, Narrawallee & Milton before heading out to the lunch – even simpler questions to answer.  At Pigeon House Tea Rooms we enjoyed lunch and stunning views in every direction.

At the start of the afternoon run we were handed the final navigation sheet.  Just the one question…. How many roundabouts did we go through this morning?   Hmmm.

 

The Saturday run was completed at Lake Conjola with a clear blue sky and warm sunshine and plenty of time to enjoy it by the water.

Evening BBQ at Narrawallee meant plenty of opportunity for tall tales and true before falling into bed.

On Sunday we were down to 2 cars.  We had opted to do our own thing at Milton rather than the MUVCCC run to Lake Tabourie, but I did get a run sheet and we would have enjoyed that run at least as much as the day before. 

We are sending a letter of thanks to the MUVCC and hope we score an invitation for the next Harbour Classic in 2016.
