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.

I would welcome a few lines from all of my fellow competitors outlining the highs and low of your weekend plus any additional points that you saw of what was going on around you that will add to an overall report – as your notes arrive I will add them in the appropriate point(s) to build the report. Please keep reading as someone may add something that sparks a further memory that adds to the report. Once completed I will pass our report to Brian for inclusion in Perihelion.

I have made a start, it includes the map and the courses, click the ‘Our Report’ link in the results table.

Thanks to Peter Mountford, Michael Ettershank, Chris Robinson and Eddie Pope for their contributions – keep them coming.

Chris Hatton has ‘eventually’ sent in his bit – where is yours??
