A great cover to give protection from sun and rain. This type of cover tends to be situated aft of the yacht and focuses on the helmsman, though this is not always the case. A lot depends on the boom and how far the boom comes into the cockpit when going up wind. Design options are many and can be the bases of a full enclosure or can be connected to a dodger with infill awning.
