With some strong northerlies forecast we have headed into a bomb proof anchorage close to the Ukranian research base Vernadsky.
Heavy snow overnight covered the boat in a thick layer and it has continued to snow all day.
Sadly our washing did not dry!
The cruise ships and charter yachts stop here to let their passengers ashore to visit the base and also Wordie House, an old BAS research station.
It looks like we have no option but to sit out the bad weather here for a couple of days.
