A map of the sailor's route from Osmington Mills to Bournemouth
A dive boat had to rescue a Captain Calamity sailor found bobbing around in a six foot rubber dinghy 3 miles off the Dorset coast yesterday.
The madcap mariner had set off in his unsuitable craft from Osmington beach near Weymouth to attempt a 35 mile voyage to Bournemouth.
After several hours struggling against the prevailing tide the dive boat 'X-dream' had to come to his rescue.
