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.

Open News


Here we go again, the Staunton Harold Comet Open has been cancelled.

Chipstead is also cancelled.


Other News

The Minutes of the 2020 AGM and the updated Constitution are to be found in the Members’ Area.

Some DIFFERENT news rather that the doom and gloom regarding Covid. Andy is developing a modification to the support ring for the Reefing White Xtra (RWX). Click here for a direct link. There is also a link to this page from the Information page.

My modified ‘Parts’ and instructions arrived on Wednesday and based on Facebook comments others did too.

“Views” on the Nationals

Whilst the Nationals and AGM were cancelled several Cometeers braved the drive to Bala to take advantage of previously booked accomodation.

At rest after a long drive.
Our Auditor hard at work! Bala from 600ft above!
High Tide!
Many thanks to Helen Leivers, John Sturgeon and Chris Robinson
