Narrative

between Cape Kemp and Py point, Doumer Island (q.v.), Palmer Archipelago, was charted by BGLE in February 1935 and so named from its position on the island (BA chart 3213, 5.x.1950; APC, 1955, p.19; BA chart 3572, 25.vii.1958). Bahía del Faro [=lighthouse bay], so called from the light sited on Py Point by AAE in 1947 (Argentina. MM chart 106, 1949; Pierrou, 1970, p.359). Bahía South (Chile. DNH chart 510, 1955; IHA, 1974, p.266). A station for summer occupation was established on the SE shore of the bay by the Chilean Navy, 18 February 1962, and called "Yelcho" after the Chilean oceanographic ship "Yelcho" (BAS 250P sheet SQ 19-20/3, 1-DOS 1979).
