The fourteenth of November. We made sure the sea had calmed down and started moving towards Teriberka, where we could easily land ashore at a closed harbor. Looking at the pictures, one might think that the storm was still raging, but this is not quite accurate. These are rollers – large shallow waves, gradually rolling towards the vessel or proudly rising nearby, so that one standing on the deck cannot see the horizon. Rollers emerge after the storm when the sea calms down or come from a distant storm.
The vessel was still lolling, water washing the deck, but the wind tailed away, its speed no more than 10-15 m/s (22-33 mph). We sailed during daylight and took as many photos as possible. We were in Teriberka three hours later. Photos by Alexander Vaynshteyn, Alexander Terekhov, Yaroslav Amelin.
