Season final

The season in Bitterwasser is slowly drawing to a close.
One by one, the gliders are being loaded into the containers. And still some teams fly over 1000 kilometers every day.

The results of the whole season are impressive! Over 230 flights have already exceeded the 1000 kilometer mark.

January has also allowed a lot more distance to be covered. So far, the strongest days in January have been 5.1.24 and 14.1.24 with 10 flights over 1000 kilometers each. And in the meantime, the thermals also showed their best side.

The clouds developed early, the bases were high and the temperature often rose above 35 degrees.

Well over 580,000 kilometers were flown over Namibia from Bitterwasser.

The best flying day this season was 22.12.23, when Simon Briel flew a total of 1413 kilometers, closely followed by Björn Gintzel with 1402 kilometers. Simon Briel thus covered the longest distance this season. Nils Fecker also managed an incredible distance of 1375 kilometers on this day. A total of 9 other pilots exceeded the 1000 kilometer mark.

We mourn the loss of Dieter Schwenk

As a member of the Bitterwasser Board of Directors and CFI of the Soaring Society of Namibia, Dieter has rendered outstanding services to gliding in Namibia.

Sitting at his favorite spot in Bitterwasser, he has left us forever.

We will not forget him.
