The Argentinean owned ship named Venezuela was sailing from Falmouth to Rouen as part of a convoy which was attacked on March 14th 1918 by the German submarine, UB-59. Two torpedos were fired, one of which hit and quickly sank the Venezuela. She is 730 gross tons and measures 190ft in length. She sits perfectly upright, but has sunk well into the sandy gravel sea bed at a depth of about 27m, with the wreck rising up about 4m.
