2021 Comet Class Membership Form

Comet Class Association
The fun-to-sail Comet offers high-level, double-handed racing to all ages with equally competitive fiberglass and wooden boats. The design combines a hard chine planing hull with a classic sloop rig and a distinctively large mainsail. The result is a boat that can plane downwind and on a reach in just 10 to 12 knots of wind, yet remains stable upwind. The Comet makes an ideal boat for husband and wife or parent and child teams, is easily trailered, rigged and launched. It is also one of the most affordable one-designs in its class.

February 2021 Comet eNewsletter...

2020 has been a wild and crazy year for us all even though most of us haven’t been sailing and competing nearly as much. Almost all of our regattas and major championships had to be canceled for the first time in the Class’s history. 2020 definitely set records, it was first the time since the early organization of the class where we have not been able to host the Comet North Americans and Internationals. Now we can look forward to the future.

While most of our fleets were not able to sail, a couple have not only been able to sail but been able to grow. Both Shrewsbury YC and the Bermudian fleets were able to increase attendance and the competition was heating up. This shows that even in the hardest of years the Comet is still a great boat to sail and we can survive a pandemic of worldly proportions.

Many of you had probably read the email requesting interest in attending the 2021 internationals in Bermuda. Sadly due to limited response and the continued pandemic issues, the event will be postponed again for this year. We thank all those in Bermuda for their efforts and hope we can make this amazing event happen in 2022. This said we are now looking into alternative venues for the 2021 Internationals. If any YC is interested in hosting the Internationals please let us know.
