Welcome to the list!
You can either use boost::geometry::for_each using a strategy, but the
most convenient way is probably to use exterior_ring to get the exterior
ring, and (if wished) interior ring to access the interior rings.
So for example:
ring_2d const& ring = exterior_ring(poly);
std::copy(ring.begin(), ring.end(), ....)
And for interior rings (holes):
BOOST_FOREACH(ring_2d const& ring, interior_rings(poly))
// do things with this ring
