Just in from the Office of Naval Intelligence:

At 1323Z a hijacked sailing yacht and possible pirate mother ship were located at 1800N 06102E approximately 282NM southeast of Sur, Oman.

This area will remain high risk for at least the next 24-48 hours. Mariners are warned to avoid transiting near the area if possible. If necessary to transit these waters, mariners are encouraged to be vigilant and employ best management practices.
