Summary

The pilot was taking part in a course designed to teach the techniques and practices of cross-country flying. He had been briefed to conduct a local soaring flight, but elected to carry out a cross-country exercise. An outlanding became necessary, however the pilot misjudged the approach to the selected paddock. The glider collided with trees and a power line at the upwind end of the paddock. The pilot had failed a previous cross-country check flight, and had been specifically briefed not to conduct flights away from the local area until he had received additional instruction. He declined to provide reasons for attempting the subject flight.
