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.

New Xtra Sail

As you may know Andy, in connection with Hyde sails, has been developing a new Xtra sail – this time in Dacron rather than Mylar. Please click here to read Peter Mountford’s comments on it. In Peter’s piece he speculates about how some front runners would get on with the new sail. We will soon see how they get on as around 15 of these new sails are on there way to their new owners, including Dave Harris and ex Chair Paul Hinde.

As mentioned above we have a presence at the Dinghy Show where 2 Comets will be displayed, one with the Standard sail whilst the other will have the new ‘White Xtra’ sail so you will be able to make direct comparisons. You never know Andy may have some special deals!

Comet 705 offered for sale – see Classifieds.

Reminder – The committee would be most grateful if all trophies could be returned in time for the A.G.M.

Comet Clubs

The Association would like to know of any club where Comets are sailed, please have a look at the Clubs page and if you know of other club(s) where Comets are sailed please e-mail me.
