    Cape Belsham and Point Wild relocated on Chart 29104
    From: Robin Stuart

    In a previous post I pointed out what I believed to be errors in the labelling of Cape Belsham and Point Wild (1916 camp site for the Shackleton expedition on Elephant Island) in Chart 29104. As a conscientious navigator I provided the information to National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) who had issued the chart. It was received with interest as apparently revisions to antarctic charts don't happen that often. It now seems they agree with me and have issued a Notice to Mariners the relocates the legends for both Cape Belsham and Point Wild to the south and east. No action so far on Gnomon Rock that should be located off the tip of Point Wild but whose legend sits orphaned off the coast of Elephant island,
