The blood that remained cool amid the cold now flows through Bob Ctvrtlik. It’s in his veins, the lines run, too, through his three sons. That blood that kept Josef Ctvrtlik alive while steps away from a torturous death, resides somewhere deep in his youngest son. How does Bob Ctvrtlik block out the periphery and finish the task at hand? How is he able to ignore turbulence for the sake of reaching a destination? Why does his life seem so picture perfect, though there is reason to feel gloom?

COSTA MESA — Josh Tuz's game is about pressure. As he advances in the 15th annual Costa Mesa Summer Junior Classic, he employs it constantly. Pressure is put on his tennis opponents the moment they walk on the court and see the 6-foot-4 Costa Mesa resident.

LONG BEACH — It was too bad the cannon blasting off goodbyes at the last start of the Transpacific Yacht Race couldn't be loaded with gusts of wind and rays of sunshine.

A 16-day tour of New Zealand brought together my husband, Ted, and I, our friends Ray and Jennifer Woolsey of Lake Forest, and Jack and Linda Seelhorst, formerly of Newport Beach who now live in Sisters, Ore. We flew into Auckland, and our first full day was spent with a Maori guide hiking the hills of Mt. Eden, learning about Maori history and the early days of New Zealand. We spent the next day on Waiheke Island, one of the many islands off the coast of Auckland, which we reached via the local ferry.

Even the deepest pockets can't buy an advantage in the Governor's Cup. Except for their names, the racing sailboats used in this year's Governor's Cup are exactly alike. All 12 custom-made boats are identical in design, have the same pristine white hull and have spent precisely the same number of hours on the water. Keeping the boats as similar as possible ensures that this race is all about skill. "They are very equal," said Balboa Yacht Club member Karin Buxton, whose 17-year-old son, Wade, is racing in the competition.
