Namibia at its best

Now the 1000s and 1100s are tumbling in Namibia. Some teams that have missed the big plus have to be jokingly asked in Michael Stoltze's briefing in the morning: What was going on? Less than 1100 k?

Wilfried Großkinsky and Bitterwasser Cup winner Eric Schneider set the bar on Wednesday: 1270 kilometers, average speed 160 kph! The EB28 team achieved the best average speed over several hundred kilometers on the tailwind leg from the northwest to the southeast with 225 kph.
After a good 100 to 150 kilometers journey in blue thermal, the first clouds were reached and the race along the lines could begin. The only question was: along the line up very close to the showers in the east or along those further facing the sun. In the evening, one had to take the maximum altitude and start the final approach through the blue over 150 kilometers back to Bitterwasser.

Gerhard Marzinzik ist von uns gegangen

Die Bitterwasser PTY mit allen Freunden weltweit trauert um Gerhard Marzinzik und seinen jungen Copiloten, die am 12. April 2022 bei einem Flugunfall in den Alpen im Pustertal ums Leben kamen.

Nach langer Reise....

Die Hängerreihe hatte ihre Mäuler schon lange weit aufgesperrt am Mittwoch, um endlich die Flugzeuge aus Bitterwasser aufzunehmen. Aber erst einmal musste der Zoll in die Container schauen.
