BP CEO’s Yachting Weekend

I wonder if Tony Hayward had any idea that he would set off a media maelstrom by attending a yacht race off the English coast.

I suppose he wanted a break from getting battered on Capitol Hill, and supervising the cleanup of another coast. But surely, someone must have considered the anger that would arise at his admiring a boat race on pristine English waters while Gulf of Mexico tourists will most likely be stuck watching races between tar balls, rather than luxury yachts, for years to come.
