North Atlantic passage day 9

We had more wind yesterday evening and in the night than forecast, and we had nice and fast sailing. In the early morning wind got stronger and waves bigger and it got more uncomfortable. Wind also turned to the ESE, so we are sailing towards NNE. We will stay on this course also in the next days, wind will stay as it is now and grow even stronger. There were a lot of clouds during the day and couple of showers around us, we luckily stayed dry. Ride is bumpy and I hope we'll get some sleep tonight. We saw some birds and couple of Portugese Man-of-wars.
In 216 hours we made 1267 miles, there are 1151 miles to Azores. Our position is 31° 40' N and 50° 34' W.
