You may by now have heard that one of the BWR yachts has been pirated and it would seem that the 4 crew have been taken as hostages
The Yacht is the American Flagged Quest with Scott, Jean, Bob and Phyllis
No more news is known at this time
It needs to be stressed that against B WR advice they left Bombay
1    Alone
2    Sailed straight for Salalah across dangerous waters and were advised accordingly
I confirm that we are following the BWR route to the north and our group is monitored by the UN force when ever possible and they are currently happy with our route
Our position is 22:01n 061:44e some 280nm north of the Quest attack
In 100nm from now say in 20 hours we shall be within 20nm of the Oman coast and will proceed down that coast - It is well patrolled by Oman Ships
All is well on board
Sheikh and the Team
