The aircraft was making a crosswind landing on runway 22. The pilot reported that as the aircraft was touching down on the main wheels it was struck by a strong gust, blowing it from the centreline. Because grassed areas were available, the pilot did not attempt to regain the centreline. The aircraft continued to diverge from the runway until it struck a ditch.
