Wasn't he the sailor with the Pyewacket boats? Or am I confusing him with a different Disney?

Yes, indeedy; it was Roy who campaigned Pyewacket.

I read the news of his passing on Latitude 38 and it would appear that he sailed a lot,which was not exactly news but he did it with style.In addition to dealing with the family business and setting new records,not too many of us will have the same kind of life.The phrase "a life well lived" might be appropriate.

Scott Rohrer told me a few years ago that the Pywacket racing days were coming to an end, so I figured Roy Disney was in ill health. I've only met Scott and one other member of the Pywacket crew, but I have the impression he surrounded himself with good people and was liked by the crew.
