Narrative:
During a flapless touch and go landing, the pilot considered he had an insufficient length of runway remaining to become airborne and aborted takeoff. Realising that there was also insufficient runway length to bring the glider to a complete stop, he elected to depart the runway to the right. During this operation, the right wing collided with a sign post, resulting in substantial damage. The pilot did not notice this and a further series of circuits and landings were carried out.
