Stephen Morrison at the Ratlin Sound maritime festival

The Stephen Morrison roadshow is about to set sail on another voyage/project. As part of the Portable Art exhibition we are attempting to sail El Vigo back to Northern Ireland, to complete her circle of voyaging since she sailed from there in the 1980’s. The exhibition opens in London, then travels to Spain and then to Ullapool. El Vigo was built in Vigo, Spain, the work; ‘port of arrival’ recounts her return to her boat building yard, with her then owner, for her 21st birthday.


We have also been invited back to Ballycastle and Rathlin Island, so after making a landfall in Northern Ireland, we shall be crossing Ratlin sound to show the film ‘A Boat Retold’ (Louise Milne, Sean Martin) and performing a similar event to that of the Australian Wooden Boat Festival.
