    Disney chooses diverse sailing crew for race to Hawaii

    By Nancy Wride, LOS ANGELES TIMES

    ROY E. DISNEY is best known for making movies — and a shareholder revolt that shook up his Uncle Walt's company. But for much of his life the role he's loved most has been performed on the water — sailing.

    He has set records around the world and won the West's most prestigious ocean race. Last summer, after finishing the Los Angeles-to-Honolulu Transpacific Yacht Race, organized by the Transpacific Yacht Club, he announced his retirement from competition.

    One year later, at 76, Disney is back on deck — this time assembling the race's youngest and most diverse crew in what he calls the "white bread" sport of sailing. And he's making a documentary to show how teaming disparate individuals to race across 2,225 miles of sea is naturally more gripping than any contrived reality show.
