VIDEO: Captain Calamity Rescue Bid
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.
You can watch the attempted rescue below...
