And who better to answer a knight's call for help than another knight of the British realm, Sir Richard Branson.

A four-time Olympic sailing gold medalist, Ainslie was on honeymoon in the Caribbean with his new wife, British TV presenter Georgie Thompson, when the furling system broke on the vessel's main sail.

'Seeing as Ben is one of the greatest sailors of all time, what we didn't except to see was his boat getting into trouble!' Branson explained on his blog.

'However, his boat had a serious mechanical problem, in no way Ben's fault, and he put a message out asking for help.'

Ainslie was sailing close to Branson's private Necker Island, where some of the tycoon's staff soon sailed to the rescue helping to cut the tangled sail to pieces.

'Unsurprisingly, Ben kept an amazingly cool head whilst directing operations -- he just needed more hands to sort out the mess,' the billionaire added.

It's not the first Ainslie has extricated himself from sticky situations.

The 37-year-old Briton captured a fourth consecutive gold at the 2012 London Olympics after a poor start to the competition.

The following year he played a pivotal role in Oracle Team USA's dramatic America's Cup win. He joined the crew as the team's tactician and helped turn an 8-1 deficit into a 9-8 triumph.

Once back on dry land, the newly weds holidayed with Branson on Necker Island for a few days.

The sailing star will be soon returning to his life on the ocean waves as he continues his plan to lead a British team to victory in the next edition of the America's Cup in 2017.
