The International Lighthouse and Lightship Weekend is an annual event attracting nearly 500 registrations for operations throughout the world. This year, 2018 SARC members will be activating lighthouses at Cape Byron (VK2SRC) and Ballina (VK2DLR).

The event runs from 0001 UTC 18/8 to 2400 UTC 19/8.

The Cape Byron operation will be led by Reg VK2MNM and Roger VK2LRB. They will operate as usual from next to the lighthouse keeper’s cottage. Duncan VK2DLR will lead the Ballina operation, in the small lighthouse park  on the north headland.
