Tips for keeping Khyam QE tents up in a gale?

are there any?
is it possible?
can you do something clever with the hub to stop the poles unpopping?

or did we do the right thing retreating to the car for the rest of the night, doing a bundle-it-all-in strike at dawn and skulking off home?

the Badgers' camping adventure was sadly cut short

I do have a great recommendation for an early-opening bacon butty shop near the ferry terminal at East Cowes if anyone wants it though...

oh no Badger that doesn't sound like much fun. How about some Delta ground anchor pegs, they are meant to be fab, read here for a recommendation and to buy online, you'll only need the 4 apparantely!

Have you tried emailing Khyam's customer service to ask?

I don't think you are allowed to have tips and a khyam

twas an old, borrowed and not-quite-watertight Khyam thus so not too much jealousy necessary - does pitch nice and fast though

the posh pegs look good but don't think they'd have helped - the top of the tent folded in like an umbrella but all the pegs stayed put

ah well, will assume it was the fault of the weather not of the tent!

Ah, ok. Still though.
