Pelican 1 is currently in Bermagui harbour serving as a floating stage for the Four Winds festival, a biennial event of classic, cultural and world music.
The free Friday concert that opens the festival is usually held at the town oval. This year, for the first time, a custom built stage on board Pelican1 served as the launching point for the festival. Musicians were ferried out to the ship by a punt, and music literally floated from the habour into the night. The boat was strewn with lanterns made by local primary school children.
