I hope they seize that boats and sink them - I can't imagine giving the boats back to anyone who will likely be right back at it again. Sends the message that 1) you likely might get killed 2) you likely might get arrested 3) you likely might not ever see your boat again.
I don't even have a sailboat (yet) but I would be avoiding the Suez canal for sure (shame, I would love to see oman/yemen and eritrea). I would be giving this area a 250 mile wide berth as well; especially since to avoid the Suez you would have to be going down around the southern tip of Africa to get back north to Spain and inward.
