Murdoch is the executive secretary of IEMA. In preparation of the 2007 centennial celebrations at the Royal Northern & Clyde Yacht Club, Murdoch bought Lafayette with the aim to defend the honor of the home club on the Clyde. The one boat, two year campaign ended up as a 2 boat 14 year addiction. We all knew that would happen, now he knows it too. Murdoch has become a main stay in the class, competing at just about any World Cup on both sides of the pond. He brings in a wealth of experience and expertise. A man with a canning ability to connect and promote, a man who builds bridges, always with his eye on the ball and the bigger picture in sight.
