Passing Cape Svyatoy Nos

The Mikhail Somov has delivered some cargo to the hydrometeorological station at Cape Svyatoy Nos. The station was opened back in 1895, and is still going. This is a strategically important location, the point at which the White Sea and the Barents Sea converge. The meteorological station acts as the base for navigational support in the Arctic, and is used in giving forecasts on wave turbulence and ice.
