Crankhandle Club Swartland rally 19 April 2008

Crankhandle Club Swartland rally 19 April 2008

During the week Jon and I accepted that the MGB could not be ready in time for the Swartland rally with the Crankhandle Club .  Jon prepared the 1971 Jaguar which was so comfortable and warm in the rain.  Schuppa, the Border Collie, easily fitted on to the back seat.

We met the Crankers at Milnerton Paddling club on the beach.  There were 32 cars.  We departed at 2 minute intervals in the rain.  However we soon drove out of the rain along the coast road to Melkbosch Strand.  Following our rally pages we crossed the Cape Flats to drive between the vineyards with the mountains towering over us.  It is wonderful scenery on a sunny winters day. We found our route to Tulbagh which is such a pretty little town with lots of Cape Dutch architecture in Church Street and on the wine farms.

We met at Montpellier for the winners dinner and again for breakfast.  This was a lovely event.
