A yacht reported a suspicious approach 21 Mar at 0950 local time while underway in position 14:03.6N - 049:07.0E, approximately 17NM off the coast of Yemen. Two suspicious vessels approached the yacht underway at high speed. The alarm was raised; the crew mustered and activated fire hoses. The yacht increased speed and took evasive maneuvers. The vessels aborted the attempt and moved away (IMB).
