Narrative

Point forming the W side of the entrance to Security Bay, on Doumer Island in the Palmer Archipelago. First charted by the FrAE under Charcot 1903-05. So named by the British Naval Hydrographic Survey Unit in 1956-57 because the point was sighted as a prominent landmark almost daily by the crew of their motor-launch when homeward bond for Port Lockroy at the end of a day's survey work in Bismarck Strait.
