Logic
Logic puzzles require you to think. You will have to be logical in your reasoning.

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.
