Creation sail shades. Built to last.

Creation Covers specialises in dinghy and yacht covers as well as bespoke sewn items such as bags and canopies. In 2017, Chris Gould decided to expend to make shade sails using techniques learnt from making dinghy covers.

The idea behind a shade sail is to create shelter, UV protection or shadows in order for an area to be used for more of the year and be more comfortable to use. This means that every requirement for a shade Is going to be different and so each one can be made to suit the customers individual needs.

The design can include triangular, rectangular or much more complicated shapes in 2 or 3 dimensions. There are a range of materials available to suit the application and these come in a wide range of colours to fit in with the surroundings.

Supernova dinghy covers

Chris Gould of Creation Covers sails a Supernova and in 2017 plans to come and do some of the series as well as the Nationals and Inlands. He has developed a number of smart features for the boat to make trailing easier and the boat better protected.


The toestrap comes as a plain strap made in double layers of webbing with dacron sewn into the middle to keep them stiff. There are also padded toestraps available. Other neat features can include a tube lifter to help with holding the strap up.


Chris has also developed  small pouch bag that you can use to store food and drink. Other design ideas include a padded boom bag for use while trailing to stop the boom scratching the inside of the cockpit.


This is also large enough to store a tiller extension and a burgee if required.

supernova-coversupernova-cover-2The design of the cover includes a full transom cover to protect the underside of the boat when you are taking the boat off the trolley, also there are darts sewn into the top of the transom to remove the excess material. This has the effect of supporting the cover better while towing and reduces the need for a halyard lifter. (Especially if the bow is raised a little) There are a choice of colours available.

There is also a combi foil bag available as well as undercovers in Polyester or Weathermax.

Rigging your dinghy for racing

photo-2-4Rigging your dinghy for racing is not necessarily so different than if you are cruising. Some of the small and subtle differences are often in the setup and adjustability of the rig so that you can set up to suit the conditions. Racing calls for more urgent decisions and often having the right choice of ropes can make adjustability easier and more consistent.



There are a selection of ropes that can be used for your dinghy, but knowing what ropes to use for a particular application can be more difficult. If you would like advice on rope selection for your dinghy, then Creation Covers supplies ropes to cut lengths and will provide the right rope for the job.


Creation Covers use mostly English Braids ropes as they have a good range of ropes and some top spec materials to choose from.


Contact Chris Gould on 07910291507 or through the contact form and he can supply some of the best ropes at sensible prices.
