This month’s trivia contest is about team racing. Tell us what a Mark Trap is and why it’s used.
Mark Trap is one of the most common maneuvers in team racing. Use one to allow your teammates to catch up. It involves slowing an opponent and temporarily preventing them from rounding the mark so a teammate can pass through and move ahead.
In her answer, Blockhead Gianna described it in terms of “predator” and “prey.” She also said, “a Mark Trap is used so that a sailor in the lead can bring their teammates into the lead with them — Because friends don’t let friends get last!” Hilarious! We love it. Thanks, Gianna!
Randomly from the list of correct answers, the winner of the Blockheads Dry Bag and Brandana is Tryg Van Wyk! Congratulations, Tryg!
