"On 11 August, SAVAGE anchored at Vung Tau, South Vietnam, and the Commanding Officer and representatives from the Operations and Weapons department received a thorough briefing by members of the staff of the Commander of the Coastal Surveillance Center for that area."

[Vũng Tàu is the largest city and former capital of Bà Rịa–Vũng Tàu Province in Vietnam. The city area is 140 square kilometres (54 square miles.]  

[The port of Vung Tau lies in the south of South Vietnam on a peninsula that extends from the southern tip of Phuoc Tuy province into the South China Sea.]

[The first mentioning of the settlement on the cape where Vung Tau is located now was in 14th century. There was quite busy navigation and ships use Vung Tau bays for anchorage during storms and bad weather.  This ships activity inspired the name “Vũng Tàu”, which means “anchorage”. Portuguese navigators passing Vung Tau many times named it after Saint Jacques and the French invaded Vietnam afterwards called it “Cape Saint Jacques”.]
