It was reported that the flight proceeded normally until during the flare. The glider was lined up with the strip, but during the hold-off it drifted to the right and touched down on the edge of the marked, 50 metre wide strip. The landing roll continued off the runway and the starboard wing struck a tree 20 metres from the edge of the strip. The landing was conducted in 4 to 8 knot crosswind conditions. During the hold-off the student pilot applied excessive rudder control when aligning the aircraft with the strip prior to touchdown.
