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.

2019 AGM

All of the documents relating to this year’s AGM at Fishers Green are in the ‘Member’s Area’.


A plea from Steve Gregory –

“The Frensham Open next week is by tradition shared with the Solos. They have kept costs down each year by providing tea, as we have paid kitchen staff to cover breakfast and lunch. So please can attendees bring a donation ‘to keep our end up’. A packet of sausage rolls, crisps or any type of cake etc will be greatly appreciated”

Steve Gregory (C57)

Bob Dodds is our new Association Champion. A small field of 13 boats contested the event at Severn Sailing Club on the River Avon! The wind gods were not in our favour with little or no wind all weekend until the latter stages of the 5th and final race. See the Results page for a super fast report delivered by Roger Lemmon.

Calendar Update – Tewkesbury Cruising and Sailing Club Comet Open will take place on Saturday 31st of August, creating another ‘Double header’ weekend. Details are in the Calendar.

Frensham Pond Open – further details are now in the calendar.

The first 5 Open results are now in the Results page. It looks like Bob Dodds is out to repeat last year’s marathon around the clubs.

Perihelion 2019

To spread the load next year I have decided that there will not be an ‘over the winter’ edition as very little happens other than the dinghy show but 3 medium editions reflecting roughly one third of the Open calendar. Therefore the 2019 Calendar will not be posted out as in previous years, all being well it will be e-mailed to you.


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.
