We are all happy to see your good progress!
Acc. to best WX do not go further south or you may be becalmed in a few days. Windspeed is going to drop to near zero in the area ahead further SW.
Best progress forecast from present position is heading almost W. On this course wind is forecast to be NE’l most of the time for the next few days. Strongly recommend to keep slightly north of a rumbline promising to maintain good speed for the next two weeks!

Good speed! It is a pleasure to follow your progress!
As recommended yesterday, your best course is to stay north of a rumbline. This is more so today! Your best course for some days will be around 270°. This will keep you at a good angle down wind for the next couple of days or even the entire crossing and will make sure you will maintain your great progress!
following your recommendation and heading 270 now.
