Ocean City Yacht Club - Lightning Fleet 430: Most of our Lightnings were not in the boatyard during Sandy. The ones left in the yard had minimal damage. Not so for the OCYC club house. Water reached 18 -24 inches throughout the club. Total damage to all rugs, flooring, kitchen equipment, furniture, etc., etc.!! 6 to 8 folks have been ripping everything including wall paneling up to 3 ft for 4 days. Total damage cost and time to repair -unknown at this time!

Surf City Yacht Club - Fleet 196: Our first thoughts are for everyone affected by the storm. Surf City Yacht Club (Surf City, NJ) was damaged by Sandy, but right now the bridge to Long Beach Island is closed and I have to thank the people still on the island for the limited information. The reports and pictures show there was a couple of feet of water above the bulkheads and extensive flooding in the street, marina, and grounds. The main clubhouse is intact but flooded, and docks and grounds will need extensive work. Once the bridge is open again we'll have a better idea of what happened and the status of the club.

Monmouth Boat Club - Fleet 70:
Hurricane Sandy certainly devastated Monmouth Boat Club (Red Bank, NJ). The Navesink River rose 8 to 11 feet, washing away most of our docks and boats stored in the yard. One stack of three docks remains in the yard, one is behind the ice boat clubhouse which shares the same parking lot, one is on top of the marina's dock next door, and many floated across the river as did most of our boats.
