The Comet Duo dinghy is an extremely versatile boat, equally suitable for racing, cruising & training. Roomy enough for 3 adults or a small family yet light enough to be sailed singlehanded.
The Duo is the ideal dinghy to start club racing. The fast hull shape and decent sail area give the potential for excellent performance. At 12′ overall, the Duo is very manouverable and responsive on the smaller lakes & rivers, and offers interesting racing with other dinghies. The standard Comet Duo dinghy is absolutely ready to sail but options of self bailers, adjustable jibsheet tracks and jib stick are available for the keen racer. The new owner becomes a member of the Class Association for the first year. The association organises National Championships. Open Meetings, Cruising Events & Class Newsletter.
Great for family fun. A comfortable cockpit has all round internal seats providing secure seating for children. A high boom and rear mainsheet keep the cockpit clear & uncluttered. The Comet Duo sailing dinghy comes as standard with a slab reefing mainsail & jib furling gear which reduces the sail area quickly & effectively for beginners or heavy weather sailing. The light weight and compact size of the Duo make her ideal for the singlehanded sailor who prefers a drier and more comfortable sail than the more usual singlehanded dinghy. Optional storage hatches, oar & outboard pad help make the Duo great for cruising.
