Just curious, how can you miss Bermuda in these days of GPS??????
We never missed it with celestial back when. It's the only thing out there for quite a few miles
I'm afraid I let humor obscure clarity.

When heading to the Caribbean I leave Norfolk on 135T (or as close as I can) until I get to somewhere around 60W to 70W (depending on where I'm going) and turn to 180T until I get where I'm heading. If you look at the track it appears initially as if I'm aiming at Bermuda and then turn. I call that "aim for Bermuda and miss"

I do enjoy Bermuda when we stop there. As you say it is both lovely and expensive.
