Comet is a single handed, light, easily transportable and launchable by one person. It requires low maintenance and offers challenging performance, but most of all is one design. The Comet is fast but surprisingly forgiving. Plenty of sail area for exciting sailing and amazing light wind performance but easily reefed for beginners. Extremely comfortable to sail with a roomy cockpit.

There are three main sail rigs – ‘Standard, ‘Xtra’, and ‘Mino’ (the latter is a small rig, mainly for junior sailors)
