New Book by High-ranking Naval Officer Calls for Naming Bahamas Waters the Lucayan Sea
- Jul 17, 2015 - 9:00:26 AM
Nassau, Bahamas - A high-ranking naval officer and author of
several scholarly publications is calling for the majestic waters of The
Bahamas and Turks & Caicos to be named the Lucayan Sea, declaring
that the name not only pays fitting tribute to the islands’ original
inhabitants but reflects the nature of Bahamians as a people of peace.
Tellis A. Bethel, Acting Commodore of the Royal Bahamas Defence Force,
makes a strong and thorough argument for the naming of yet-anonymous
waters in his new book, The Lucayan Sea, Birthplace of the Modern
Americas (Outskirts Press.com). The book, available in hard copy and
online for Kindle, takes the reader on a 90-page journey from the time

continuing absence of a name for either the territorial waters extending
up to 12 miles or the exclusive economic zone that extends up to 200

families that lived Over-The-Hill.
"On my frequent drives through
the old neighbourhood, I observed that most of the once lovely and
