On arrival overhead the destination the pilot assessed the wind velocity and decided to land on runway 23, a 610 metre long grass strip. The wind direction was north-north-easterly at 15 knots. The pilot reported that the aircraft touched down further along the strip than normal, and that braking was poor on the grass surface. About two thirds of the way along the strip he considered going around but did not attempt to do so because of trees at the end of the strip. The aircraft overran the strip and collided with an abandoned vehicle before overturning. The pilot had inadvertently misread the wind direction, and in doing so had operated the aircraft outside the published landing performance criteria.
