Go out of St Helier, turn left a bit to avoid the rocky bit, turn right due south, keep going straight for a bit then turn right, keep going right then double back left to go in the main ships channel.. just go between the red and green. simples
Is this a delivery for someone in St. M? Got a boatyard in mind to store it at?
Seriously though, it's very straight forward, presumably the chap comes from St. Malo and so may be familiar with the approach which is the trickiest bit. We do the trip regularly and have done it in 1hr 7mins, but when its rough this can be much longer. On a fairly conservative routing it is around 34 mile which with a sensible driver is around 1hr 45. We tend to go outside the Minquiers cardinals, but there are shorter routings for those experienced. If you need more info, don't hesitate to PM Gotchidad (not me) he's the serious one in the outfit
