Narrative

S entrance point of Dalgliesh Bay, Pourquoi Pas Island, was roughly charted by FAE, 1908-10, and called Cap Lainez after M.L. Lainez (Lainez Point, q.v.) (Charcot, 1912, Pl. 2); surveyed in 1936 by BGLE who misapplied the FAE name to the N entrance point of the bay, now Lainez Point (Rymill, 1938a, map facing p.432). Punta Yungay after the Chilean town, following CAE, 1947 (Chile. DNH chart LIII, 1947). The point was resurveyed by FIDS from "Stonington Island" in September 1948; named Cape Bongrain after M. Bongrain (Bongrain Ice Piedmont, q.v.) (APC, 1955, p.6; BA, 1956, p.78); following further survey by FIDS from "Sally Cove" in 1957, renamed Bongrain Point (APC, 1960, p.3; BA, 1977, p.7; BAS 250P sheet SQ 19-20/14 (Ext.), 1-DOS 1978). Cabo Bongrain (Chile. DNH, 1962, p.196; IHA, 1974, p.50). Cabo Barracas, so called by AAE after the river boat of the Argentine naval squadron, c.1810 (Argentina. MD, 1978, letter B). Punta Bongrain (Argentina. AA, 1991, p. 8)
