All good answers!
If the weather permits and you are able to be VMC aim for anywhere between 5000ft and FL80.
With Guernsey SIDs climbing to 4000ft and Jersey SIDs climbing to 5000ft, anything above that will give a pretty unhindered DCT routing.
Should be 60+ nm of lovely CAS for you, with a handover to Rennes on 126.950.
* if for whatever reason you cannot get to 5000ft+ You can expect a number of routes;
1. Via Guernsey - so have a look a the VRPs and you may need to hold depending on IFR traffic.
2. Route 165 degrees ish from SKERY and stay west of Guernsey’s climbout/inbounds - then probably DCT DIN.
3. Route to the North of Guernsey, south of Alderney towards PELOM and then cross Jersey (again check the VRPs and possibly a delay depending on IFR traffic).
Either way, there is generally no real delay for you.
