The first two starts of the season

A great season opening!

"I still have goose bumps," says Reinhard Schramme. He said he had never seen such great weather at the beginning of the season.
On 25.10.23, Reinhard Schramme and Elmar Erik Fischer took off for the first flight of the Bitterwasser season around 12 noon. After initial blue thermals, clouds appeared after 1 hour in the north until shortly before Rehoboth. Promising thermals!
With an average of 200 km/h at times, the two of them managed a grandiose 973 km in the end.

But that was not enough!
The following day the team flew 898 km.
This is how the season should start!

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.

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.
