    Helen Reilly/Dave Oakley – Brazilian Adventure

    7 for 7:30Cotswold Club

    David was brought up on sailing, his parents were already world travellers, but he and Helen set out on an intrepid voyage to Brazil and back in 1996 & 1997. Their passage took them out via the Canaries and the Cape Verdes to Brazil. Then along the Brazil coast northwards, as well as trips into the Brazilian heartlands. They returned via the Caribbean and the Azores, making landfall in Ireland. All this is a small boat, just 30ft, but well prepared and organised.

    They saw and did lots over the two years and made new friends. Definitely a talk worth seeing, especially as it is by two of our own members. Lovely photos and artwork from their design studio will make this a memorable presentation, and somewhere music is involved, but that will be a surprise on the evening!

    Menu:

    A – Slow braised shin of beef on a bed or herbed rice with a cream, brandy & mushroom sauce
    B – Plaice fillets, creamed spinach, baby new potatoes & asparagus
    V – Wild mushroom Stroganoff
