Bill Harmon’s three decades spent as a sailor have given him stories from adventures at sea, which he is now sharing in his new book.

“Knot for Sailors Only,” recounts Harmon’s sailing adventures and lessons learned in the form of short stories and poems, which experienced sailors will fondly relate to and new sailors can eagerly learn from.

The book also includes vivid images of sea life and sailing memorabilia, many of which contain photos taken by Harmon, bringing the stories and poems to life.

Harmon’s experience as a sailor has taken him across vast waters through long sails in the Caribbean and earned him various high-level positions, including serving as the sailing and weather instructor for the United States Coast Guard Auxiliary.

“As an experienced sailor, I have spent much of my time at sea, which many people don’t get to experience,” Harmon said. “This book is a way to show my grandchildren and fellow sailing enthusiasts how many life concepts can be mirrored through proper sailing techniques.”

In “Knot for Sailors Only,” sailors and boating enthusiasts alike will revel in Harmon’s stories of life and learning through the highs and lows, out at sea.
