The first 1400s of the season!

The thermals are still turning up and with them comes a new distance record for the season so far!

On 22.12.23 Simon Briel flew 1,412 kilometers in 9 hours and 16 minutes with the EB 28. This is the longest distance covered so far this season. With an average speed of 156 km/h, he even crossed the South African border.
Nils Fecker and Hans Ulrich Meuters did the same. They covered a total distance of 1,375 kilometers.
And Björn Ginzel also managed 1,402 kilometers two days before Christmas.

A total of 9 sailors reached the 1000 kilometer mark. All in all, one of the strongest days of the season.

All the pilots took off early from the pan and were quickly close to the clouds. The thermals were wide-ranging and developed in all directions.

What better Christmas present could there be?

Wir trauern um Dieter Schwenk

Dieter hat sich als Mitglied des Bitterwasser Board of Directors und CFI der Soaring Societey of Namibia um den Segelflug in Namibia besonders verdient gemacht.

An seinem Lieblingsplatz in Bitterwasser sitzend hat er uns für immer verlassen.

Wir werden ihn nicht vergessen.
