This afternoon [Oct 27] saw a few brave souls hit Horseshoe Bay to take on nature as the swells and wind approached from Hurricane Sandy. While the hurricane itself is still hundreds of miles away, high surf with severe chop and a steady 20 knot wind was enough to get these adrenalin junkies on the water.
The Bermuda Weather Service has deemed Hurricane Sandy a threat to Bermuda, and said its closest point of approach to Bermuda within 72 hrs [3 days] is forecast to be 362 nm to the WNW at 11pm on Sunday.
