Many larger vessels (including navy ships, cruise ships) put to sea for hurricanes since they are more likely to be damaged or sunk in harbour. I suspect the HMS Bounty was somewhere in the projected landfall area of Sandy and was trying to get south to safer water...damned if you do and damned if you don't.

Latest from CBC says the crew has taken to the liferafts and USCG choppers are on the way. I sure hope they make it out OK.
