Air Dale 7 tent review

Follonica, Tuscany, Italy
38 degrees Celsius
We have had no issues with the tent at all. Due to our sheltered position from any wind, we have not even needed to tie it down. We have had a few large gusts of wind and the tent has not moved.
Air beam
Pumped up the day we arrived and they have not lost any pressure at all. With blistering heat the beams are standing up well and do not get softer at night when they cool down.
Lounge liner
Best investment one could do if you are heading to the heat. We could not go in the tent a few weeks ago in 30 degree back in Rutland, but now with the liner it is still hot but not radiating heat. When we put the liner up in the heat the difference was immediate.
I would also recommend Outdoor Revolution looking at a liner option for the front porch. This would work for the less windy camping spots in the heat.
The Airdale 7 only has one side door which means in this case due to the site we have against the hedge and it is not usable. Ventilation would be better with two side doors so for hot weather camping the Airdale 6 might be a better option.
In saying that the ventilation system work well and even better if you add the lounge liner.
Massive, lots of room and kids have all there fretinds over and sit inside as everyone else is to hot in motorhomes and caravans.
The Airdale tent option is the best option for the heat over the caravans and motorhome unless you have air conditioning as a tent cools down at night.
We are very fortunate to find this campsite as every pitch come with a fully equipped kitchen and bathroom making life so easy. Great site with swimming pool.

I would recommend the outdoor revolution tent airbeam system to anyone as it it easy and fast to put up and better than poles once up.
My father repairs tents for a living and he note a lot of people are still unsure about air beams in hot weather. He is now happy to tell his customers air beams work, BUT you must purchase a good tent from a good quality supplier and it must have the air release system to avoid the air beam blowing up in the heat.

St Aidan's CE High School girl Beth Miller was the first-placed girl and an impressive second overall at the RS Tera Pro World Championships at RS Games in Weymouth Portland, sailing in the 66-strong RS Tera Pro fleet for older juniors in the class, likewise having to contend with some strong breezes. Over five days and 12 races, Beth's results included a race win and two seconds, plus a consistent set of top 10 finishes to secure the girls' title by a clear margin.

Run over 5 days and 12 races Beth took a creditable 1st place in race 5 and finished 2nd in two other races. Day 5 was abandoned due to heavy winds leaving Miller a clear second overall and first girl by some margin.

A lesson in consistency on day four in the heavy breeze Secured her title and second overall with Beth finishing 8th, 8th and 9th.

Other YDSC Pro fleet results were Oliver Rayner in 16th and taking the 1st position in race 6 and Esme Barraclough in 20 places overall.

Beth was representing Yorkshire Dales Sailing club and sailing under the New Zealand flag, representing her father native country.

In the Sports Fleet Oatlands Schoolboy, soon to be Harrogate Grammer School, William Bailey came fifth overall in a very close run battle for first place overall in the Sports Fleet (80 boats).

Thomas Bates of Ripon Sailing club entered in his first open regatta away from his local club finished a very credible 21st in the sports fleet.

Miller, Bailey, Bates and all the other Yorkshire Dales competitors have been a part of the youth training scheme at Ripon Sailing Club in Knaresborough and later move to Yorkshire Dales Sailing club to develop their skills on a larger and more challenging training ground.

The realisation of becoming the Female RS Tera Pro World Champion and second overall hasn’t yet sunk in. Leading up to the event, I would try to go to Yorkshire Dales Sailing Club as often as possible to practice my sport and perfect the little things such as hiking, tacking and jibing. Achieving something as great as this has given me an amazing feeling but at the same time, it feels like you now have such a high standard to maintain. I’ve been training hard over the past four years and especially this last season. To achieve this means a lot and it shows that anything is possible. Before the start of this regatta, one of the massive things I lacked was self-confidence. I would always doubt my ability and say that I can never beat certain competitors. During the worlds I proved myself wrong and that anything you put your mind and time to is possible. Now that I have become a world class sailor, I have much more self-belief and feel much better about my sailing. I now know I can go out and beat people I never thought I could and that has already benefited me massively.

The RS Tera Pro fleet regatta was very competitive but I think what assisted me in attaining my position were the starts and overall boat handling. My dad has been my main coach over the past four years and he has always taught me to keep my boat flat and rarely try to win the starts. Before the competition, Dad and I would sit down at the computer and watch Laser Olympic races and look at there techniques and then I tried to apply them to my own sailing In the heavy winds, I’ve been taught to play the mainsail through the gusts to keep the boat flat. On the start line, many sailors would compete to win the line but it’s more successful to be on the front row with clear air. I am not as tactical as many of my fellow sailors so before we are given the signal to launch I will find somewhere with my dad where we can look at the race course and its surroundings. I will also look at the forecast and see if it may shift and a roughly what time so I am then able to head up the bias side of the beat. The one thing I will never do is bang corners because if the wind does unexpectedly shift you can lose out massively. If I am ever in doubt about the bias side, I will always sail up the middle of the course and look at the surrounding boats to see which side looks favoured. I’m only as good as the weakest sailor, and the best advice I’ve ever been given is “Go out there, sail your hardest and what happens happens.”
Next season, I would like to go up to the RS Feva. I feel like this would be a good option because it can then improve my sailing in many different ways Hopefully, the Feva will give me more understanding of the science behind sailing and therefore make me understand how to generate more speed and power through the body and controls. Sailing a Feva will then give me experience in both a single and double handed boat. Due to going into Year 10 and starting My GCSE’s, I may have to reduce my time sailing but would still like to enter in competitions and get as far as possible.

2019 - 2020

I hope to sail the RS Feva for about two years before making the decision to either stay in a double-handed boat or go back to single handed.

I have now teamed up with her friend Tilda Brayshay to sail in the RS Feva fleet. We have been selected for the RYA RS Feva XL Zone Squad and will be training over the winter to get ready for the RES Feva Nationals in Abersoch next May 2019.
