Summary

Deteriorating soaring conditions resulted in the pilot landing at a strip close to his intended destination. The landing was uneventful and the pilot arranged for an aero-tow launch. During the take-off roll the left wing of the glider dropped slightly and became caught in long grass. The glider veered violently to the left, became airborne for a few metres then swung to the right and left again before the pilot could release the tow. The glider sustained several cracks in the mid-fuselage area.
