A shallow 11km wide indentation of the coast of Victoria Land in McMurdo Sound, between Spike Cape and Gneiss Point. Feature shown on: NZ AntTopo50-ME10
The name was suggested by the Western Geological Party of the British Antarctic Expedition (Terra Nova expedition, BAE) (1910-13), which while sledging across the ice at the mouth of the bay erected makeshift sails on their man-drawn sledge, thereby increasing the speed.
