Bullseye Championship Series - August 2-3
The Deer Isle Yacht Club has a long history of small boat racing starting with Wee Scot’s in the 1920's. In the 1960's the club adopted the Cape Cod Bullseye. Today our fleet numbers close to 20 family-owned Bullseyes.
The hull of this boat was designed by the renowned designer Nathanael Herreshoff in 1914 with the topside, rig, and construction modernized in the 50s. The Bullseye is noted for its ability to take rough water while being lively and interesting to sail.
Our club continues the racing tradition each August with the Bullseye Championship Series. This annual two day event has tested our members skills in all kinds of conditions. Weather permitting the series consists of 6-8 races with 4 completed making a series.
