Yacht and Five British Crew Detained in Iran

BBC News - Iranian navy detains five Britons on yacht in Gulf
The message is the journey, we are sure the answer lies in the destination. But in reality, there is no station, no place to arrive at once and for all. The joy of life is the trip, and the station is a dream that constantly out distances us”. Robert Hastings, The Station

I believe Iran has signed, but not yet ratified UNCLOS; presumably they understand and support the concept of "innocent passage", so I wonder on what basis they've arrested this yacht?
