my little regatta saw through a windy night this weekend. didn`t budge an inch! but my pegs are so in the ground they are a bugger to get out!!

We had this problem a couple of months ago we have a large 5 man tent an the winds were up to 30 mph we were at a campsit wich we were given a pitch some bright spark had put us right in the middle of the field with no cover from any trees bushes or walls and a cross from us was the sea we put up our windbrakes which of course were no match for the wind we actually used the car as a windbrake it worked a little but the best thing we could do was hold out for the night and move campsite the next day luckily we had put the tent up well and it stood the winds every time we go away now it's all about the wind we drive around the site looking for a spot where the wind will be blocked we must look crazy but wind really ruins a camping trip thanks for the tips
