Narrative

SW entrance point of Darbel Bay and NE entrance point of Lallemand Fjord, Loubet Coast, was roughly charted by FAE, 1903-05, and named Cap Rey after Lieut. Joseph-J. Rey, of the French Navy, meteorologist and physicist on the expedition (Charcot, 1906b, p.xvi; 1912, Pl.1); further charted by FAE, 1908-10, in February 1909, when the name The Lion was apparently also applied to the feature from its shape (Charcot, [1911b], p.134). Cap Bellu, in error (Cape Bellue, q.v.) (Bongrain, 1914, vue 26 following p.60). Kapp Rey (HA chart, 1927).

Punta Lincoyan, so called by CAE probably after a member of the expedition (Chile. DNH chart LII, 1947). The cape was photographed from the air by FIDASE, 1956-57. Cabo Rey (Argentina.
