Andrés Piedrahita Abandons Yacht


Andrés Piedrahita, the flamboyant former marketer for Madoff feeder fund Fairfield Greenwich and son-in-law of the firm’s founder, Walter Noel, has scrapped plans to sail along the Dalmatian Coast in his yacht, Oxygen, after reports that he was “vacationing blatantly” in the wake of the firm’s Bernie Madoff debacle. “Vicky Ward has made my presence on the boat too embarrassing,” Piedrahita told sources, according to Vanity Fair and Huffington Post contributor Vicky Ward, who wrote about the story originally. “My lawyers are livid with me … my relatives are livid with me. So instead why don’t you join me on my farm in Palma?” [HuffPo]
