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.

If you would like to find out if there are Comets in action near you then go to the club-map page and enter your post code and change the search radius if required.

Also a list of clubs, and the last reported number of Comets sailed, can be found on the clubs page

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.

Members will be aware that we have the Perihelion Archive within the “Members’ Area”. This archive stretches back to the beginnings of the Association and contains a lot of very useful information but, as most archives do, it is sitting there unused, possibly because you did not know what was in it. Over the past few weeks Chris Robinson has looked through all of the Archive and has created an Index of Interesting Articles. Just hop into the Members’ Area to see what is on offer.

Similarly we are indebted to Chris Robinson for information on the Comet Dinghy and to Henry Jaggers for his Comet Association brochure or Comet Association Brochure (his traditional A4 3 fold) which may be of help to all.
