Narrative

The cape was further charted by FAE, 1903-05, in 1904 and, because of ignorance of the earlier naming, renamed Cap des Trois Pérez after the brothers Manuelo, Fernando and Leopoldo Pérez, of Buenos Aires, who there assisted the expedition in December 1903 and February 1905 (Charcot, 1906a, map facing p.316).
