18/08/2008 News: The Lighthouse and Lightship Weekend 2008 was good fun! Please, click here to see photos from our event at Barrenjoey. The 2008 ILLW was not even over when the Heist aan Zee Lighthouse, Belgium, entered the 2009 ILLW! After two days of operation at Barrenjoey, being tired I could not help being impressed: that is true dedication!
