British sailors head to Dubai after release by Iranians

This is a relief. From The Times
Five British yachtsman detained by Iran after straying into its territorial waters were being towed back to freedom today after being released by the Revolutionary Guards.
Iranian state radio announced the men's release early this morning, six days after they were picked up near the Iranian island of Sirri, where they had then been held.
A Foreign Office spokesman said that the five and the yacht they had been crewing, the Kingdom of Bahrain, were being towed by Iranian vessels back into international waters in the Gulf, where they would be met by boats from the Dubai Offshore Sailing Club.
"We understand that they are most likely to be towed back to the yacht club," he said.
Next time, in case the engine fails again, take oars. I suppose Iranian Revolutionary Guards are a better prospect than Somali Pirates.
