The pilot travelled to his property on a regular basis. As seven inches of rain had fallen in the previous five days, the strip on the pilot's property was unserviceable due to the surface being soft. The pilot decided to land on a nearby strip which had a gravel surface and was not rain affected. This strip was aligned north south. On arrival overhead the strip, the pilot assessed the wind velocity as westerly at 10 knots and gusty. He positioned the aircraft to land into the north. After touchdown the aircraft was struck by a severe wind gust which caused the aircraft to become airborne, bank to the right and drift to the right off the gravel surface. The aircraft touched down on soft cultivated land and overturned.
