Welcome to the Bullseye Sailing Association!

May 2020 News Flash

Dear Bullseye Sailing Association Membership:

At the Bullseye Annual Meeting on May 3rd, we announced that given the realities of the coronavirus era, the 2020 Bullseye Nationals scheduled for August 7 - 9 at Fishers Island will be postponed until the summer of 2021.

This decision was made out of care for participants, spectators, support staff and volunteers, as well as the broader Fishers Island community. We recognize the challenges facing the Association after not holding a National Championship regatta in 2019. However, rather than hosting a regatta with sparse attendance and little ability to socialize, our Bullseye fleet decided, in consultation with the Bullseye Sailing Association leadership, to hit the pause button for one summer. A return in 2021 will enable the Fishers Island Yacht Club to host the best and most complete regatta it can offer.

Planning is already under way for August 13 - 15th, 2021 with sailing taking place in the protected waters of Fishers Island Sound. Graciously, those in attendance on May 3rd, as well as representatives from Sandy Bay Yacht Club in Rockport, MA, who had planned to host the 2021 Nationals, approved this bump in the rotation of hosts as we navigate the uncharted water of a global pandemic.

We wish you fair winds this summer and look ahead with great anticipation to the Bullseye Nationals of 2021!

Sincerely,

David H. Burnham, Treasurer, Bullseye Sailing Association
John B. Glendon and Louise Burnham Packard, Co-Chairs, Bullseye Nationals 2020

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 Sailing Association. Also included are the complete Constitution, the Technical Specifications A-D, the Technical Specifications E Sails and Regattas Rules of the Bullseye Sailing 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 Sailing 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.

The Constitution and Rules have been changed so that "Bullseye Sailing Association" replaces every occurrence of "Bullseye Class Association", and "BSA" replaces every occurrence of "BCA".
