RESOLUTION & ADVENTURE
Captain James Cook visited the Marlborough Sounds for the second time in 1773 aboard the Resolution. He had left England with Capt. Tobias Ferneaux, who commanded the Adventure, but the ships became separated in a storm. Ferneaux arrived in the Sounds 10 days before Cook, but departed before Cook's arrival. During Ferneaux's visit to the Sounds, several of his crew were killed and eaten by local Maori.
