The first Brazilian member, Companhia Comercio e Navegacao (“CCN”), appears in the Club records in 1948. In 1983, the UK Club was honored by the election to its Board of Directors of its first Brazilian director, and the Club has maintained almost continuous representation from leading Brazilian shipping executives since then.
