North Atlantic passage day 6

Wind remained strong yesterday and we had a bumpy but quick ride during the night. Unfortunately not in right direction, but towards North. We are staying on this course in hope to get better winds in the next days. Temperature is dropping the more we move away from the Caribbean, evenings are quite chilly, I'm thinking of wearing a cap tonight on my night watch. We saw a couple of birds today, two Greater Shearwaters (Puffinus Gravis) stayed with our boat for half an hour. Yesterday I cooked a big pot of fish curry and we're finishing it off today.
In 144 hours we made 870 miles, there are still 1454 miles to Azores. Our position is 28° 40' N, 55° 25' W.
