During his approach to land, the pilot had been advised to use the right side of the grass runway in use, Runway 28L, due to a waterlogged area. During his approach he had been side-slipping his aircraft to the left during his hold-off, to allow the aircraft ahead to clear the runway, but he had not realised his aircraft had drifted too far right. On touchdown, and after a small bounce, the right mainwheel ran off the runway into a ploughed surface and the aircraft pitched forward and spun around. Although the aircraft was damaged, the pilot was uninjured.
