Summary

A solo rated pilot was undertaking a check flight with a highly experienced instructor. Operations were from the 01 strip with a 20 to 25 knot wind gusting from the northwest. While the glider was in flight a decision had been made to cease operations due to the inclement weather conditions. During the landing the sols pilot was unable to maintain directional control and the glider weathercocked. The instructor was not able to take over and recover the situation before the glider collided with a parked glider severing one metre from its right wing.
