Welcome to Comet Class Association

The Comet web site aims to give you information on the fast, friendly and fun single handed sailing dinghy, the Comet.

The Comet Class Association organises over 20 events each year. Although these are open to all Comet owners and helms, only members of the association are eligible to qualify for the various travellers trophies and enter the 2 championship events.

The class association also publishes a newsletter at regular intervals throughout the year. Each issue includes reports on the open meetings and championships, information about forthcoming events, lots of Comet tips, and rules updates.

Information about our open events and championships can be found on the calendar.
