Etoile du Roy 2

Yesterday, for those of you who were awake, I posted some photos (taken early in the morning by Richard & Madeleine) of the beautiful Etoile du Roy replica frigate, which is currently moored at St Malo & is open for visits.

Looking again at their blog, I noticed that the advert for the British Lions rugby tour of Australia in 2013 was made on this boat.

Whether you are a rugby fan or not – the detail of the advert is fascinating,

so, for your pleasure, here’s the advert in full – followed by the making of the advert.

 

 

 

Joyeux Chanti-Noël

Merry Christmas from CHANTIMOR!

In 2013 we established our line up, made a CD, became an official « association », had our first AGM, opened a bank account, organised our own e-mail address (chantimor@yahoo.fr) started this blog, started a Facebook page & have 50 « likes »…… and performed at various fêtes, bars & halls in the Morbihan.

To our families, thank you for trailing around with us, thank you for coming to our rehearsals, thank you for your feedback, thank you for the quiches, the cakes & the wine & help with costumes.

To Dave & Anwyl, thank you for letting us use your home as Chanti HQ.

To all the crew, thank you for hilarious Thursday evenings.

To our newest member, Les, thank you for being prepared to be at Chantimor’s beck & call.

If I’ve forgotten someone or something, no doubt one of you will let me know!

So, I’ll leave you with the Xmas photos….. and we’ll be back with our Shanty hats on in 2014.
