The second cruise of the MBM Cruising Club season is underway and the fleet was hoping to make the passage from Cherbourg to Jersey today

MBM’s Channel Islands and the West Country cruise is now underway. The fleet arrived in Cherbourg on Sunday but the passage to Jersey was thwarted yesterday by bad weather.

Joining Claire and Neale, our Cruising Club coordinators, on this trip is Cruising Club regular Richard Poat and MBM production editor, Michelle Grant, who will hand over the MBM baton to our editor, Carl Richardson, at the weekend.

You can keep up to date with the progress of the cruise through our Cruising Club blog , which is being updated daily with information on passages, weather, and anything else that occurs during the trip.
