Sailor 'Captain Calamity' crashes for 13th time

A sailor dubbed 'Captain Calamity' because of his disastrous seafaring has destroyed his catamaran by crashing for the 13th time.

55-year-old Glenn Crawley is said to have taken up sailing in 2003 and the sea has been a more dangerous place since he did.

In his first year alone Crawley was forced to call 999 and get coastguards to rescue him and his catamaran 'Mischief'.

Since then he has called out the Royal National Lifeboat Institution an additional nine times - prompting them to come up with his Captain Calamity nickname.

his latest crash - which destroyed his catamaran - happened as he attempted to ride Britain's biggest wave at Newquay but ended up flipping over.  Ellen MacArthur he is not.
