Nanaimo (2001 pop. 73,000) is the second largest city on Vancouver Island in BC, British Columbia, Canada. It has been dubbed the "Bathtub Racing Capital of the World". It is about 55 km west of Vancouver, separated by the Strait of Georgia, but directly linked to Vancouver via BC Ferries. It is the seat of the Nanaimo Regional District.
