The COAMPS model predicts Easterly winds for tomorrow in the strait.

COAMPS model: Sat. Oct 11 @ 12:00 UTC

The same model for late Saturday predict south winds, than by Sunday 06:00 UTC winds should shift to westerly wind and allows Blue Note to tack to the rhumb line.
The simulations with the current grib files, shows pretty much similar strategy: West heading until winds shift, then pretty much following rhumb line.

Simulated ETA for La Gomera 6d 5h with some motoring during the periods of light wind.
ETA simulated once passed Tarifa.
