We do this by:-

  1. Organising National and Inland Championships as required.
  2. Co-ordinating the programme for other Open Meetings and cruising events for the “Classes” in the British Isles.
  3. Promulgating information on technical development within the “Classes”.
  4. Keeping members informed of developments concerning the “Classes” and any proposals concerning class rules.
  5. Maintaining a register of CCCA members.

Please look at the News and Events tabs to see what is currently happening or look at our Facebook page.

For descriptions of the dinghies and associated technical information look under the Classes tab.

We hope that you will find the information you are seeking, if not, please contact us.

Eric Goodley

I’m sorry to report that Eric Goodley has sadly passed away.  Many of our long standing members will remember Eric as Secretary of the Class Association from it’s inception around 1997 until 2005.  He did a lot for the class during this time, promoting the Trio both on and off the water.  He was friendly and conscientious, welcoming new Trio owners to the class at events and showing them how it should be done by helming Lady Z to first place in the inaugural Trio National Championships in 1998 and also the Inland Championships in 2002.  He could be found at the Dinghy Show manning the stand and extolling the virtues of the Trio to anyone within earshot.  As Secretary he helped David Talbot steer the Class Association through it’s transition from the Trio Class Association to the present Combined Comet Class Association.  He will be sadly missed by those who knew him. His funeral is likely to be in the first week of February and it will be video streamed. If anyone wants any further information then please contact Chris Boutle.
