Max Dorsch wins the Junior Cup 2019 PDF Print option in slimbox / lytebox? (info) E-mail

Maximilian Dorsch already learned to appreciate the Bitterwasser Flying Center. He trained to fly big distances in Namibias in one of Wilfried Großkinsky`s 1000 km training camps. This year, on the 10th of July, Maximilian used this experience to fly a 1008-kilometer distance with a LS4 WL from his home field Bamberg. With this flight he conquered the top in the Bitterwasser Junior Cup 2019. At the „OLC-final“, the prize giving ceremony of the online contest 2019 in Poppenhausen / Rhön this October weekend, he got the reward: Rainer Hog congratulated on behalf of the Bitterwasser AG and presented the invitation for a week cross country flying in the Flying Center Bitterwasser. The junior from AC Bamberg won by a clear margin over Markus Uhlig from FC Großrückerwalde. Henrik Theiss of FLG Grabenstetten took 3rd place.

Robin und Niklas mit ihren Mentoren Birgitta und Wolf-Dietrich Bornhodt vom FSV Radolfzell.

Fliegen in Afrika, das ist schon eine andere Welt. Robin und Niklas vom FSV Radolfzell hatten das im November in Bitterwasser so noch nicht auf dem Schirm. Von Deutschland und ihrer LS1 und Standard-Libelle waren die beiden Junioren anderes gewohnt. Den Formel-1-Betrieb mit Vollgas gleich nach dem Aufrichten aus dem Thermikkreis und unter Wolkenaufreihungen lernten sie mit Coach Wolf-Dietrich Bornholdt und dessen Arcus kennen. Im Rahmen ihres persönlichen Juniorenförderprogramms hatten Wolf-Dietrich und Birgitta Bornholdt die beiden Youngsters ihres Clubs zu dem Streckentraining nach Bitterwasser eingeladen. Wie sie die neue Welt erlebten, berichteten die beiden jetzt in einem begeisternden Beitrag in ihrer Vereinszeitschrift, der „Infopost Stahringen“. Wer das nachlesen möchte, findet die Seiten als PDF im Download.

Two juniors in gliding paradise
Flying in Africa is another world. Robin and Niklas from FSV Radolfzell did not have that on their radar in November in Bitterwasser. The two juniors were used to other things from Germany and their LS1 and standard Libelle. With coach Wolf-Dietrich Bornholdt and his Arcus they got to know the Formula 1 operation with full throttle right after straightening out of the thermal turn and under cloud formation. As part of their personal junior support program Wolf-Dietrich and Birgitta Bornholdt had invited the two youngsters in their club to cross country training in Bitterwasser. The youngsters now reported on how they experienced the new world in an inspiring article in their club magazine, the "Infopost Stahringen". If you want to read this, the pages (in german) can be downloaded as PDF.

Das ist definitiv das Ende der Segelflugsaison in Bitterwasser: Die Lkw für den Transport nach Walvis Bay rollen bereits an, als noch ein Rumpf in den letzten offenen Container geschoben wird. Und während die Beamtinnen vom Zoll die Papiere ausfertigen, verlässt schon der erste Transporter die Lodge durch die verwaiste Palmenallee, Ziel Walvis Bay.
Von Walvis Bay geht es mit der Bright Horizon nach Rotterdam. Bei Lademeiseter Sascha Costabel in Mühlacker treffen die Container dann voraussichtlich am 2. März ein – rechtzeitig für die junge Segelflugsaison in Europa.

The caravan is rolling
That is definitely the end of the gliding season in Bitterwasser: The trucks are already rolling in for the transport to Walvis Bay when the last fuselage is pushed into the latemost tightly packed container. And while the customs officers are still preparing the papers, the first transporter is already leaving the lodge through the abandoned palm alley.
From Walvis Bay the vessel Bright Horizon will bring the containers to Rotterdam. They are expected to arrive at loadmaster Sascha Costabel in Mühlacker on March 2 - in time for the young gliding season in Europe.

The first gliders are already in the containers for the journey to Bitterwasser. For almost 30 self launchers loadmaster Sascha Costabel had created space in one of the large steel boxes. On the first weekend in September they were packed with sophisticated suspension systems. Just six 18-meter single-seaters fit into a container thanks to good planning. The big solos, an Antares and an ASW 22, have to share their travel cabin with one of the double-seaters, which meanwhile make the single-seaters a marginal phenomenon in the Flying Center Bitterwasser.

Via Hamburg and  Antwerp the journey of the seven containers starts now with the Bright Horizon to Walvis Bay. The freighter is expected there at the beginning of October - in time for the new flying season.
