Searchers were battling rough weather Monday in their bid to rescue four Germans on a boat that lost power on a trip from Argentina to South Africa, naval officials said.

The Germans set sail from Mar del Plata before experiencing power trouble and taking on water, a navy official said, adding that the four were in good health.

They have had some help from a Panamanian vessel while awaiting rescue from the Argentine navy about (1,100 km) 580 miles from the Argentine coast. But the naval assistance has been delayed by rough weather, the source said.
