May 3, 2012. The "Etoile" and "Belle Poule" are sister ships from France that will be on tour for 4 months this year. Halfway through their cruise, they have stopped in Savannah to participate in the Tall Ships Challenge.
The event is organized by Tall Ships America, a non-profit founded on "youth education, leadership development and the preservation of the maritime heritage." Those participating in the festival can tour the ships, meet the crews and embark on short excursions.
