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.


The Very Latest News

Nationals update – SHSC OOD for our National Championships, Howard Jones, would like a volunteer to attend the daily Race Committee meeting to ensure that all is as we would like it to be. If you are interested please let me know.


Apologies to all regarding my tardiness in updating the web site over the past few weeks – computer failure and family issues have been more pressing. Now rebuilding files that have been lost in the transfer between old and new computers – yes they were backed up but to err is human to completely mess up use a computer!!

If you have a report or results for any Open that you have not forwarded PLEASE do so ASAP.


We are sad to report the passing of Derek Coleman, please click here to read Norah’s comments.

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.

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.
