Boats suffer in Switzerland in icy conditions
Thu, 11 Mar 2010 Stewart Campbell

This photo was taken on 9 March at the marina in Grandson on Lake Neuchatel in Switzerland, and shows yachts listing dangerously under the weight of ice on their decks.
It was reported that 13 yachts sank in the marina on Tuesday after a third day of strong, northerly winds.
