As oil spews in Gulf, BP chief at UK yacht race

 

LONDON (AP) -- A BP spokeswoman says BP chief executive Tony Hayward is attending a yacht race off the Isle of Wight in southern England.

 

Spokeswoman Sheila Williams says Hayward took time off his duties handling the oil spill catastrophe in the Gulf of Mexico to see his boat "Bob" participate in the J.P. Morgan Asset Management Round the Island Race on Saturday.

The one-day yacht race is one of the world's largest, attracting hundreds of boats and thousands of sailors.
