The Association

The Comet Association was formed in 1986 to provide an organisational arm for the sailors of the new Comet Dinghy designed and built in 1981 by Andrew Simmons initially under the AMS Marine banner and latterly under the Comet Dinghies banner.

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 Traveller’s 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.
