Narrative

flowing NNW into the cove E of Wennersgaard Point, Davis Coast. The coast in this vicinity was roughly sketched in January 1829 by Foster, who applied the name Cape Sabine to an unidentified feature lying SE of Cape Kater (q.v.), after Sir Edward Sabine (1788-1883), English astronomer and geodesist who was a member of the Committee for Foster's expedition; member of British expeditions to Arctic Canada, 1818, 1819-20; President of the Royal Society, 1861-71 (Foster and Kendall, chart, 1829a). Following survey by FIDS from "Hope Bay" in 1948 and air photography by FIDASE, 1956-57, the name of Sabine was applied to the present feature.
