I crewed on a Virginia-St. Thomas, USVIs delivery
in '09 and we had Bermuda as the "out". However, checking with Herb H. on the topic of weather convinced the skipper
that our safest (and fastest) course would be to just continue making out turn South with the weather system's wind
staying largely aft of the beam. So in the middle of the night, I saw a faint loom of orange light I was told was Bermuda off the port sternquarter...but I don't regret missing it given the fairly heavy weather all around us.
So I would plan to go in terms of paperwork, etc. but also plan to avoid it if changing circumstances dictate. I know it's pretty, and it's expensive, and that the reef-strewn approach is better done in daylight. Fair winds.
