At the completion of the student's second flight the instructor believed the glider was too high downwind and used speedbrake in an attempt to recover. As a result the glider got into an undershoot situation. The instructor attempted a landing outside the aerodrome to avoid hitting the boundary fence but a heavy touchdown resulted damaging the landing gear and wheel well area. This accident was not the subject of an on-site investigation.
