    LONDON (Reuters) - An amateur sailor, described as "clueless" by his
    rescuers, was picked up at sea by British coastguards for an 11th time --
    just two days after being rescued as he navigated with a road map.
    Eric Abbott, 56, ran aground in his homemade boat off the north coast of
    Wales Thursday as he tried to sail across the Irish Sea from Anglesey,
    British newspapers said.
    It was the same area where the unemployed painter, from Northwich in western
    England, had been picked up 48 hours earlier. He has now agreed to take
    navigation lessons after the bailouts that have cost more than $82,520.
    Can our UKers verify this story?
