Customers come second when boat racing is involved and Britannia rules the waves

Oracle customers were a little upset when CEO Larry Ellison decided the Americas Cup was more important than his customers last week. The flamboyant CEO missed a keynote he was giving in favour of watching a race.

The Oracle team, referred to as the American team, overcame a team from New Zealand, despite having to come from behind. Critically the man who saved the day was a Brit, in the form of multiple Olympic champion Ben Ainslie. This proves that Britain still rules the seas.

Perhaps Oracle customers might call for Oracle to hand the wheel to a British CEO after Ellisson went Awol.
