See SWNS story SWBOAT; A bungling sailor dubbed ‘Captain Calamity’ is caught on video capsizing his catamaran for the 15th time – then REFUSING help from a stunned lifeboat crew. Each rescue costs £2,000 Glenn Crawley, 56, has repeatedly flipped his boat while trying to conquer Britain’s biggest waves, costing the RNLI over £35,000 in rescues. The hapless helmsman sparked another scare Monday when harbour officials spotted him floundering in surf off the Cornish coast.
