Names that other countries have for this feature:
Bay lying between Homeward and Gauthier Points on the N side of Doumer Island, in the Palmer Archipelago. First charted by the FrAE under Charcot, 1903-05. So named by the UK-APC in 1958 because the bay gives adequate shelter to small craft against both the SW gales which create a heavy sea in the southern entrance to Neumayer Channel and the strong northeasterly winds which funnel down the channel; it was used for this purpose several times by the British Naval Hydrographic Survey Unit in 1956-57.
