The 47-hour private pilot was executing full stop landing on Runway 17 with the wind reported from 230 degrees at 9 knots. During the landing flare, the airplane drifted left of the runway centerline, and the pilot corrected by applying crosswind controls and continued the landing. The airplane touched down with the left main landing gear off of the 60-foot wide runway and the pilot lost directional control of the airplane. The nose landing gear buckled, the airplane nosed-over, coming to rest in the inverted position. The pilot was not wearing the installed shoulder harness and egressed the airplane with minor injuries. The operator of the airplane recommended that a go-around would have prevented this accident.
