Winners Camp

The invitation to a week of gliding in Namibia can be won as a junior in the Bitterwasser Cup, which is held across Europe in the OLC. This season, two winners enjoyed their prizes: Henrik Theiss, who was successful in the previous year, and Eric Schneider, winner of 2021.

Henrik Theiss, was a bit late due to the pandemic, but on his first day in Bitterwasser he got to know Namibia with all its weather phenomena that the country has to offer – on the positive side the powerful, high-reaching thermals and the elongated updraft lines and on the other side the extensive fall areas on the edge of thunderstorms and dust rollers whipped up in strong winds. On this exciting flight, Henrik sat together with Wilfried Großkinsky in the cockpit of an EB28 edition.
Later, Henrik, flying alone with the Ventus 3M, was able to look forward to his first 1000 k in Namibia. It wasn't the very first, however. At home in Grabenstetten he has already managed two with the OLC-Discus, one of them in the small version with a wingspan of 15 meters.
But it doesn't always have to be a 1000 k flight. Christmas presents could also look different. Henrik Theiss: " A 720 k FAI triangle on Christmas Eve, I will probably not see that again anytime soon."

An Weihnachten 1000 Kilometer zu fliegen, das ist ein tolles Geschenk für jeden Piloten. Diesen Wunsch haben sich vier Piloten mit über 1100 Kilometern an einem Tag mit unverhofften Möglichkeiten erfüllt. Simon Schröder und Max Schäfer flogen ganze 1400 Kilometer mit der EB28 an Heiligabend. Im folgenden berichten sie gemeinsam über ihren Flug.
