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.

2020 Dinghy Show

Yes it’s that time of year to start planning your christmas list of Comet and general Sailing gear, especially with the bargains to be had at ‘Ally Pally’ at the end of February! I wait while Andy stops choking and gets his breath back!!

We will be having a stand at the show and Chris Robinson is, again, our show co-ordinator.

For upto date general information seeĀ https://www.rya.org.uk/dinghy-show/Pages/visitor-information.aspx or for speakers / talks see https://www.rya.org.uk/dinghy-show/whats-on/Pages/speakers-stages.aspx

Open News

Well, that’s all for this year. The SHSC Open has completed the Open results table – it is a pity that so many events are ‘report-less’.

The 2019 Results table is now complete – unless you know different, there are 11 Opens with no reports. So if you started one and can complete it please let me have it.

Similarly anything ‘Comet’ is always welcome.

Goodbye 2015

Please note that the set of results for 2015 will be removed from the web site shortly so if there is anything that you need from 2015 now is the time to get it before they disappear.

Measurement Rules

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

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.
