Check out last month’s answer and winner to the monthly Harken Blockheads Trivia Contest:

👉 Question:

The America’s Cup was first contested in 1851, which makes it the oldest trophy in international sport – predating the Olympic Games by 45 years. While watching the inaugural race, Queen Victoria asked one of her attendants to tell her who was in second place. Her attendant’s response has been passed down in the history books and still exemplifies the essence of the America’s Cup. What did Queen Victoria’s attendant say when asked about the second-place boat?

👉 Answer: 

“Your Majesty, there is no second.”

🏆 Congratulations to the trivia contest winner – Lukasz Machowski! 🏆
