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.

AGM – brief notes

The AGM was held on the Saturday afternoon of the Nationals at Burghfield and several new committee members were elected.

Chairman – John Sturgeon

Secretary – Liz Hossell

Membership Secretary – Mark Govier

Trophies – Nigel Austin

Event Organiser – Steve Gregory

Paul was presented with a mini ‘Weather’ station as a thank you for his work on behalf of the Association; whilst Nora was presented, for her many years of service, with a large bouquet of flowers and a photograph! The photograph was of a garden bench! Not to be outdone Henry was presented with the instructions to put it together!

Andy’s builder’s report centred on a new sail design which uses the existing Xtra spars but is of a Dacron fabric that is slightly larger in area than the Xtra sail but is battened. More details on it as I get them.
