Shipping date for European entries from Portsmouth confirmed


The Barbados Rally Club (BRC) has confirmed Tuesday, April 25, as the sailing date for the Geest Line freighter Benguela Stream, which will ship the European entries for Sol Rally Barbados 2017 across the Atlantic Ocean. After the 10-day voyage, the 30 or so cars will be off-loaded at the Bridgetown Port on the south-east corner of the island before being collected by a team of BRC officials and volunteers and transported to ‘Rally Central’, the secure base at which the Club hosts the bulk of its overseas visitors, which will this year be located at Bushy Park Barbados.
Rally Office Manager Jeanne Crawford said: “The date falls in line with recent years, but I would just remind our first-time visitors that the closing date for cars to be delivered to the dock is noon the previous Friday (April 21); all paperwork must also be submitted to Geest no later than this date, along with payment for any additional crates they may be shipping, and insurance must also be in place. The return shipping date is yet to be confirmed; currently, the scheduled date is either Friday or Saturday, June 9 or 10, subject to availability.”
