Jahresstart am Thunersee

Team: Steffen K., Max, Marcel, Steffen B.

Actually we wanted to go to Italy over the Epiphany weekend and start the new year at the Fontanazzi and Oliero. Unfortunately, like last year, the weather put a damper on our plans. So we decided to go to Lake Thun in Switzerland for 3 days at short notice. Four of us rented a holiday flat in Interlaken and all arrived on Friday evening/night.

For Saturday the Bätterich was on the program. What better way to start a diving year than with a cave dive? ?

So we drove to the parking lot, straightened our equipment and dived to the cave. Here we also started straight away. While Max and Steffen B. dived to a depth of about 50m, Steffen K. and Marcel unfortunately had to turn around a little earlier due to a technical defect. After the dive we shared our impressions of this cave with a few other cave divers and met by chance Markku Diedrich with whom we talked directly about some dive spots. We spent the evening with delicious cheese fondue and talking shop.

The next day deep diving was on the agenda. For this we went to the dive site Fischbalme. Max had been told by Derk Remmers that at 140-150m there is an old habitat of Oliver Isler. Max and Steffen B. wanted to look for it. During this time Marcel and Steffen K. went for a 100m dive. It should be the first 100m dive of Marcel. After a little more than 100 minutes diving time both teams were out of the water again. Max and Steffen reported about the habitat and Marcel was proud to have made his first 100m dive. In the evening we had pasta and pizza and walked a little through Interlaken.

Monday was already our last day. On recommendation of Markku we went to the Guntenbad. Here diving is only allowed in the winter months. The dive site drops down in several steps. Steffen B. and Max dived here again at 75m while Marcel and Steffen K. did a nice dive at 50m. After both teams were out of the water again, the vehicles were loaded and we made our way home.
