Along with her sister ship Etoile, schooner LA BELLE POULE serves the French navy in the
training of future officers. Designed with the hull shape and the rigging of fishing vessels from Breton, LA BELLE POULE and ETOILE were built in 1932 in the fishing port of Fecamp in northern Normandy, France. During World War II, both vessels relocated to Portsmouth, England, where they served the Free France Forces. They are permitted to fly the French ensign with the imposed Cross of Lorraine in recognition of their service during the war.
