Festival Film: One Simple Question

In Festival Highlights

Have you ever dreamed about setting sail on the high seas for an extended adventure living out of a boat? Teresa and Ben Carey certainly did; for them this dream was so vivid and important to their being that they found themselves living a life devoted to the sea. In 2014 the rockstar sailing couple’s passion led them to release the critically acclaimed documentary One Simple Question, a film which details their experiences of living on a small boat in search of icebergs in far northern seas. Much of the inspiration for the creation of this film stems from their deep love of the planet and desire to raise awareness surrounding environmental issues currently impacting our oceans.

Possibly the best and most honest movie depicting what it’s really like to be out there blue water sailing. Daria Blackwell

Following the success of their documentary, Teresa and Ben have continued their journey as educators and gone on to become the co-owners of Morse Alpha Sailing, a coastal and offshore sailing school based out of Rockland Maine. In addition to teaching hard seafaring skills, Teresa and Ben have molded the philosophy of Morse Alpha to also emphasize developing character qualities such as leadership, crisis management, and fun-loving camaraderie. Don’t miss opportunities to learn from these two at this year’s Port Townsend Wooden Boat Festival! With a showing of One Simple Question on Saturday evening and a variety of workshops throughout the festival, there will be no shortage of chances to be enriched and inspired by the life experiences of Teresa and Ben Carey.
