The most powerful boats were off to a fast start in winds of 15 to 18 knots after the first day of the 38th biennial Transpacific race to Honolulu on Monday, but the conditions weren't expected to last. The 78-foot Sayonara from San Francisco that started Sunday was right on Merlin's record pace of 11.1 knots, but earlier starters were running out of wind the farther they sailed offshore. The smaller boats farthest out were logging as little as 41 miles per day in winds as low as 1.

Normally, one wouldn't think the high-tech navigation system used in competitive sailing would have anything to do with NASCAR stock car racing. But there is a connection. In yachting, a satellite Global Positioning System, or GPS, is used to determine a boat's position and performance, the drift of the current. This information allows the navigator to compute the fastest course.

Coming in swiftly and silently, almost ghostlike as it streaked victoriously past Diamond Head under a moonlit sky long before dawn Monday, Pegasus 77 very much resembled the mythical flying horse for which it is named.

At 1 p.m. today off Palos Verdes, a horn will sound and 11 sailors aboard Morning Light will set a course for Hawaii and perform feverishly as one, trying to gain an edge on the competition. Their sleek white vessel will sweep past Santa Catalina Island and continue far to the west, through the night, during which they'll study the weather to determine the quickest route to the islands. Then the call will be made, "Cut!" and Morning Light will about-face and return to Long Beach.

"You're pinching," Robbie Haines tells Roy Disney, interrupting a conversation with a reporter. That's sailing talk, meaning that Disney is trying to sail too much into the wind, slowing the boat. "I realize that," Disney tells Haines, a world-class sailor who manages his boat. "I turned the wheel just before you said that. I can't be interviewed and sail at the same time." That's the price of being a celebrity sailor. Yes, Roy is one of those Disneys, but not the one you might think.

The magic of Disney has entertained millions, but when Roy E. Disney takes to the sea, there's another kind of magic at work: that of the ocean and wind, the sun and moon. "We're sailing over to Catalina at sunset one Friday afternoon," the Disney vice chairman recalls, "and it's a warm day with a good breeze. The boat's just cruising along and there's an enormous sunset dead to the right and big orange trail of sun on the water.

The slender white sailboat moved across the swells so swiftly and purposefully, it was as if some supernatural force had taken control. Roy Disney would later describe Pyewacket's historic sprint to the finish line, during the 1999 Transpacific Yacht Race from Los Angeles to Honolulu, as one of the most magical experiences of his life. Clouds had been painted pink and orange by the setting sun.
