Summary

Summary

The pilot was approaching to land in strong crosswind conditions. The area near the threshold of the strip was obstructed by machinery and another glider, and the usable strip width was reduced because of long grass. Although there was adequate strip length, the pilot elected to land close to the other glider. During the landing flare the aircraft drifted towards the obstructions, and the pilot raised one wing in an effort to avoid them. The other wing entered the long grass and the aircraft slewed sharply before falling to the ground.
