Welcome to the Bullseye Class Association
The purpose of the Association shall be:
- To promote use of the fiberglass Bullseye as a family boat, and for recreational sailing.
- To provide specifications and rules in regard to hull, spars and sails in order to protect one-design aspects of the fiberglass Bullseye, and to insure uniformity and safety in racing.
- To establish communication between individual owners, and groups of owners, of fiberglass Bullseyes, by means of newsletters and an Association Bullseye publication.
- To encourage participation by owners of fiberglass Bullseyes in racing.
The following pages describe the Cape Cod Shipbuilding Bullseye one-design sailboat, its Herreshoff design heritage, and the group of owners known as the Bullseye Class Association. Also included are the complete Constitution, the Technical Specifications A-D, the Technical Specifications E Sails and Regattas Rules of the Bullseye Class Association, the results of past National Regattas, some helpful hints for the care and feeding of Bullseyes, listings of sailmakers, trailer manufacturers, a photo gallery of Bullseyes under sail and more.
The Bullseye Class Association
Fleets located all along the East Coast keep in touch through the Bullseye Newsletter, which is packed with sailing tips, stories, regatta information, and results. We have members all over the country, but the chartered fleets race out of Key Largo FL, Fishers Island NY, Saunderstown RI, Marion and Rockport MA, and Southwest Harbor ME. Everyone comes together for the Bullseye National Regatta. The location of the regatta rotates, which allows for a change of scenery. Come join the fun, and , if you have an active fleet, consider becoming a chartered fleet.

|July - 2015|
2015 National Regatta - Rockport, MA
The Nationals will be held on July 31-August 2 at Sandy Bay Yacht Club in Rockport, MA. The local fleet is excited to welcome sailors back to Rockport. Launching is easy, since the club has its own hoists. Our inner breakwater is being rebuilt this winter, so the harbor anchorage should be in good shape. As is customary for Bullseye events, visitors will stay at SBYC members’ homes. Mark your calendars! The Nationals Chair is Laura Hallowell, email@example.com.
