Bad weather conditions frustrate the unloading of materials from the Bulgarian Navy research and survey vessel Sv. Sv. Kiril i Metodii (RSV 421), destined for the St Kliment Ohridski Bulgarian Antarctic Base on Livingston Island.

The ship has cast anchor in the Island's South Bay.

A cargo container cannot reach the shore by the pontoon raft. The effort has to be put off as too risky because of strong wind gusts and rough sea. Floating icebergs calving from the glacier make the situation even more complicated. The icebergs turn South Bay, where the Bulgarian base is located, into "ice soup".

BTA's Daily News editor Konstantin Karagyozov is the only member of the media who is travelling on board the ship to Livingston Island and back and covering the Bulgarian expedition throughout its stay in Antarctica.

All media outlets can use the Bulgaria-Antarctica BTA's Log for free.
