20 Nov – Namibian Grand Prix

It sounds very grand, but it was a great way to finish the “Flying with the Champions” program in Namibia. 5 Arcus from Kiripotib and 1 from Bitterwasser joined together over Pokweni and ran a 280km race which took us over the 3 gliding sites in Namibia ending overhead Bitterwasser.

As you can see yet another blue day, so a good way to use such a day. All gliders completed the task within a few minutes of each other with speeds around 125kph.

Some of the guys after the last flight. Richard and Hans-Pieter (2nd and 4th from left) two of my students for the week. Phil (Left), a fellow instructor. For the record Richard and I came 3rd, though we don’t know if we picked up any penalties yet.
