About This Category

Tall ships (ie largely wooden boats with sails and rigging!) and associated material. This collection exists largely thanks to Bruno (BG), since I remain unable to tell a sloop from a tug.

See also Recreation.

You might like to visit: Pablo Avanzini's Tall Ships Blog, Gauthier Marines of St Malo, Max's web site (professional tall ship photography), and Traditional Boats and Tall Ships magazine.

Bruno also recommends some links for people who want to go sailing:

(AKA "vieux gréements" or "grands voiliers" in French, and "tallship" or "tallships" in English.)

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.
