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.

2021 Dinghy Show

Covid 19 gets everywhere – the RYA 2021 Dinghy Show was cancelled in its traditional format! The ‘VIRTUAL’ RYA Dinghy Show has risen from the ashes and will take place on the original dates. As is our normal practise the Comet Association will be present at this virtual event.


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.

The new measurement rules to include the White Xtra are in the member’s area.
