Albert, who was just back from his trip around the world in a sailboat, asked me, "What part of my boat has travelled the longest distance?"


Answer

The mast, in other words the top of the highest mast (top of the sail).

The earth is round(ish), therefore the mast would form a concentric circle with the hull (for example). The mast, being the furthest away from the centre of the earth, would form a circle whose circumference would be bigger, therefore it would have travelled the longest distance.
