Description (see definition): Small bay lying immediately N of Cape Disappointment, the S tip of South Georgia. The name Rogged Bay, which was probably used by early sealers, was recorded by Arnaldo Faustini on a 1906 map and applied to a wider but less distinctive embayment in this vicinity. Following its survey in 1951-52, the South Georgia Survey (SGS) reported that the small bay immediately N of Cape Disappointment required a name. The existing name Rogged Bay was recommended, as limited to this small bay, by the UK Antarctic Place-names Committee (UK-APC) in 1954.
