Island on river, Turret Rock, Nakwakto Rapids holding world record for fastest current of any navigable waterway, Northern British Columbia, Canada

Slingsby Channel is a strait on the north side of Bramham Island in the Queen Charlotte Strait region of the Central Coast of British Columbia. It is one of only two entrances to Seymour Inlet and the associated maze of waterways inland, which lie to the northeast of Bramham. The other entrance is Schooner Channel, formerly Schooner Passage, on the east side of that island. Through the Slingsby Channel flows the world's strongest current, the Nakwakto Rapids, that has been measured at speeds up to 18.4 miles per hour. The current is so fast at times, that people have tied a rope to Turret Rock, which is located right in the middle of the rapids, and then water-skied

A Human Sacrifice in a Morai, in Otaheite; in the presence of Captain Cook, c1773

A Human Sacrifice in a Morai, in Otaheite; in the presence of Captain Cook, c1773. Captain James Cook and his officers watching a group of Tahitians chanting as a man and some pigs are prepared for sacrifice on the island of Otaheite (Tahiti). This is one of the events witnessed by Cook, the famed navigator and hydrographer, during the second of his three exploratory voyages to the Pacific region in 1772-1775 when they crossed latitude 70 degrees - the furthest south then reached by Europeans. These voyages transformed our knowledge of the region. From Story of the British Nation, Volume III, Walter Hutchinson. [London, c1920s]
