A student and certified flight instructor(CFI) were on a thermal training flight when they encountered downdrafts. The flight was diverted to a nearby airport. On final approach the CFI realized the glider did not have enough altitude to land on the runway. The CFI took control of the glider and during a right turn the right wing dragged weeds and the glider crashed. The CFI reported that the accident could have been avoided if he had chosen an alternate landing site sooner.
