Storm Policy Enacted 
Due to the approaching Tropical Storm, Jose, the Club Manager and the Board of Governors are enacting the CPYC Storm Policy, as outlined in the House Rules (Section XII, page 87 in your yearbook). We are expecting severe weather and, as such, we would like to remind every member that the safety of your boats is your responsibility. Please secure your boat, sails, and covers adequately. If your boat is in the basin, it is recommended that you take down your roller furling jib. If your boat is in the drystall area, covers should be removed - particularly those that may cause additional windage. Thank you for your prompt call to action regarding our storm policy!

Potential Boat Purchase Scam 
Be aware of a potential boat purchase scam whereas an out-of-state person offers to buy the vessel, sight on-seen, and cover transportation costs, but wants the owner to pay the shipper with undisclosed / excess proceeds. The extent and end-game is unknown; however, a couple of CT Lightning owners with boats for sale had gone through a series of e-mail communications with the same person who was unwilling to provide a phone # or a valid address.
