6:01am 24th January 2013
A Cornish sailor nicknamed Captain Calamity has sparked another rescue operation.
Onlookers scrambled lifeboats for the fifteenth time for Glenn Crawley when his catamaran flipped off Newquay's Towan beach.
The fifty-six year old refused help insisting he is "pushing the boundaries of sailing."
But it is estimated call outs stretching back years have cost the RNLI £40,000.
The charity says it will always respond to calls for help when someone is in trouble at sea, even if its help is refused.
