    Every landing in a Glider / Sailplane is a FORCED LANDING wherever it comes down.
    Never fly a glider unless you know you can handle a landing in rough terrain, or away from the airfield.
    Luftwaffe Pilots all started out in gliders, and they had a high survival rate in forced landings in powered aircraft due to the skills learned in the gliders.
