Reichel/Pugh 60 Pyewacket V

"An ocean racer all his adult life, Roy Edward Disney thrived on competition while sailing the seas of North America and Europe. But despite logging several records, 15 Transpacs with three Barn Doors and so many races to Mexico that he says “I wouldn’t even know how to count,” he felt vague envy for some of his sailing peers.

Not anymore. Now, launching his second life of sailing at 78, he has the perfect boat, a new Reichel/Pugh 60 named, familiarly, Pyewacket V, for Del Rey Yacht Club’s PV09 International Race Series consisting of four separate races along the way from Marina del Rey to Puerto Vallarta starting Jan. 31." - Lynn Bowser of Westerly Marine
