Coral Harbour Base (RBDF): Five outstanding athletes from The Bahamas sporting community paid a visit at the Royal Bahamas Defence Force’s Coral Harbour Base on November 16, 2018.

The men and women are among 11 individuals who were inducted into the National Hall of Fame on November 23 at Government House. While at the military base, they were given an overview of the daily operations of the RBDF. Their visit included a tour of the Force’s Medical Center and HMBS Rolly Gray, one of the Legend Class vessels.

Among the honorees visiting the base were Agatha Delancy and Harcourt Poitier for golf; Samuel Symonette for bowling; Peter Gilcud for basketball; and Edmund Lewis for cricket. While touring the base, they were officially welcomed aboard by Commander Defence Force Commodore Tellis Bethel, who thanked the group for their service to the country through sports, and lauded them as living legends.

Also in attendance were representatives from the Ministry of Youth, Sports and Culture. They were all treated to lunch during the tour. The National Hall of Fame is the highest honour for outstanding athletes, coaches and officials in the country.
