The pilot had continued gliding at altitude despite deteriorating weather conditions. When he returned to the circuit he found that a strong wind was blowing. During the approach to land the pilot found that he had to hold a heading up to 45 degrees off runway heading to counter the right crosswind. After flaring to land the glider drifted and weather-cocked. It came to rest after passing through a barbed wire fence.
