Tommy Bahama has decked out captain Roy P. Disney and his Pyewacket crew for this year’s Transpac Yacht Race. The Los Angeles-to-Honolulu pursuit covers 2,225 nautical miles with 58 teams competing in nine divisions.
Disney will be at the helm of an Anderson 68’ racing boat stamped with the Tommy Bahama logo on the flag, mast and spinnaker. Disney (whose grandfather Roy started the Walt Disney Co. with his brother Walt) comes from a long line of Transpac winners. This year marks his 20th Transpac, but it is the first time he is racing his own boat. The Pyewacket-ers will cross the finish line in the brand’s “aloha” shirts. Tommy Bahama staffers will welcome them with a party. The team is expected to finish Friday.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
