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.

Hi all Cometeers, your Committee have not forgotten you and are working to provide you with all forms of sailing. More news on that as plans, hopefully, come to fruition.

The 2021 membership form is now available with a nice discount for existing members to take into account the disruption caused by Covid19.

Links to latest Comet Price lists are in the Classifieds section.


Covid 19 gets everywhere – now it is the turn of the RYA 2021 Dinghy Show to be cancelled!!

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.
