Narrative

between Madder Cliffs and Cape Kinnes, Joinville Island, was called by AAE, 1951-52, Bahía Suspiros [=bay of sighs] in reference to the difficulty of anchoring in the cove (Argentina. MM, 1953, p.315; Pierrou, 1970, p.677); surveyed by FIDS from "Hope Bay", 1953-54, and named Kinnes Cove, in association with the cape (APC, 1958, p.5; BA chart 3205, 23.xi.1962).
