Storm of the Year

The most destructive storm in the last 5 years hits Sochi


The strongest storm in the last 5 years hit Sochi on December 3. Waves were 5-7 meters high and wind speed reached 30 m/sec. At that moment 159 yachts were in Imereti port including PROyachting company's GP 26 racing yachts which held Sochi Winter Cup regatta here. None of the yachts were damaged: fortunately the harbor is heavily protected by the breakwater which even allowed the Sochi Winter Cup organizers to hold the races in the marina. We gathered the most powerful shots of the storm, taken by users of social networks, in one photo gallery.
