Competition was tight for the first year of the newly developed and rebranded Farr 30 Fleet with Jim besting the second place finisher Monica and Marc “Skip” Skipwith’s Clockwork by 1 point.  Murrell was consistently in the top ranks of the fleet and was named boat of the week at Long Beach Race Week in 2008.


Congratulations to Jim Murrell and his team of Huckleberry 2 for winning and we look forward to a great 2009 season of competitive racing and fleet growth.
