I just noticed that the data of day 3 noon report was wrong (same as data of day 2)
This is the correct data for day 3 at noon UTC.
Quick update from the afternoon:
the wind has increased to about 17 kts from the beam, so we are sailing even faster at 6.8-7.0 kts.
It's possible that if the expected unfavorable current will not slow down too much we could make landfall on Saturday before sunset.
