On final approach to the circuit, the pilot found that a heavy crosswind was blowing and that he had to hold a heading up to 45 degrees off runway heading to counter the crosswind. After flaring to land, the glider drifted and weather-cocked. It then passed through a barbed wire fence before coming to rest.
