Security Bay Wikipedia
Security Bay (64°51′S 63°37′W) is a bay lying between Homeward and Gauthier Points on the north side of Doumer Island, in the Palmer Archipelago. First charted by the French Antarctic Expedition under Charcot, 1903-05. So named by the United Kingdom Antarctic Place-Names Committee (UK-APC) in 1958 because the bay gives adequate shelter to small craft against both the southwest 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.
