a little bit of a well timed reminder for all of us.... never bite the hand that feeds (your sailing addiction)

I'd have gone to see the boat race. But then, I'm not rich, and maybe that is why...

Oracle is getting more TV coverage from the sailing than from a corporate shindig, and was even on the radio 2 sports news for the last 2 mornings.

yes but Oracle is not a consumer brand (if you exclude revenues for AC baseball caps)- those 60,000 guests make his business what it is- delivering it to market, spending the man hours customising it and ensuring Oracle remains the enterprise database of choice.  I'm sure he's rich enough not to give a sh*t anymore.... maybe that's the the second less to take from it   LOL

Ha ha. The owner / MD of The Register is a former world champion sailor himself - he'd have been at the boat race!
