    New Tent Suggestions Please

    Force 10 Assault is a great tent http://www.sportswarehouse.co.uk/acatalog/Vango_Force_Ten_Assault.html (yes i know it says Vango but force 10 were bought up by Vango and the tents are very well made). It is perhaps a little hot in the summer in direct sunlight (but then most tents are) but it...

    Ferry Wakes

    If you cant find a ferry (which is difficult in Stockholm as the place is crawling with them but as already mentioned, the wakes arent usually that good) then speedboats can be good - some of the larger cabin cruisers, when forced to slow down can produce a run of smallish but decent surf waves...

    I would go for a wing paddle if you want a bit of variety and want to get the most out of your waterline - there are plenty out there to choose from but you will need to spend a lot of time trying them out.

    Looking for a new stove

    We got an MSR and MSR Alpine cookset - both star bits of kit. Definitely agree about using white gas, it's far more economical, easy to stow away and lasts for ages plus you can use a bit to light a real fire if the wood is a bit damp (don't try this at home). Best thing about the Dragonfly...

    I can thoroughly recommend the Titanium squeeze - used on on our recent 56 day expedition around Sweden - it was immersed in salt water for 56 days and obviously no rusting (which we got with stainless steel items) - great blade, even comes in useful for clearing skegs. We chose the...
