I cannot open the link. I guess it is this video? https://www.liveleak.com/view?t=uRXHa_1543849208

Not very bad outside. Who would leave untended a boat on a not sheltered port?

Six month old video. Could have been an anchor line fail.

Re: Video: Russian Yacht Sinking in Black Sea Storm

WE sailed the Black Sea - all the way around and sailed past this port. All we can say is sheltered port is a bit of an issue. We saw huge breakwaters broken. When the Black Sea gets bad it really gets bad. At almost every port we heard "WHAT ARE YOU DOING HERE! THE BLACK SEA IS CALLED BLACK ON PURPOSE" -
It really is a grave yard of ships and it does not matter the size.


We sat through a couple of minor storms there and would never want to see a big one. Very sad about this.
