Uruguay Navy auxiliary ship ROU VANGUARDIA suffered engine failure in waters of King George Island, Antarctica, on Jan 24. Failure was caused by sea water mixing with fuel. Nearby Chilean Navy tug LAUTARO came to assist, and towed disabled ship to safe waters of Potter Cove, south-west King George Island. ROU VANGUARDIA fixed the problem, and on Jan 29 safely reached Punta Arenas.
