  • Roy Disney gives racing yacht to OCC- The Daily Pilot- 8/9/05

    The School of Sailing and Seamanship adds a $7-million vessel to its already impressive fleet.

    Roy Disney, nephew of the legendary Walt Disney and a longtime boat owner, has donated his prize-winning racing yacht to the Orange Coast College Foundation, the latest in a string of major gifts to the college's School of Sailing and Seamanship.

    In late July, Disney donated Pyewacket, an 86-foot vessel, for use by OCC. The acquisition marks the second major gift this year to the sailing school, which received the racing yacht Kialoa III from Marina del Ray businessman Jim Kilroy last May.

    Disney's crew is sailing Pyewacket from Hawaii to Southern California. It is expected to arrive later this week.

    "It's a fantastic donation, especially on the heels of getting Kialoa," said Doug Bennett, executive director of the Orange Coast College Foundation. "It shows that our program is one of the top programs in the country. We're going to be able to offer some great sailing experiences to our students."

    Pyewacket, which Disney launched in 2004 for $7 million, finished third in this year's Transpacific Yacht Race, or Transpac, from Los Angeles to Honolulu. The owner gave the boat to OCC to commemorate his retirement from racing.
