A short word on "L'Etoile" and "La Belle Poule": L'Etoile and La Belle Poule are two sister-ships (ie exactly the same) built in Fécamps, Normandy in 1932. They are used as school ships to train the future officers of the French Navy and can often be seen at tall-ship meetings in France and abroad.
