A man's body was discovered near Ynys Locthyn, Llangrannog, on Sunday at about 14:45 BST.

Mr Taylor left his accommodation to take his boat out from Gwbert boat club in Ceredigion. It was found the next day.

Mr Taylor lived in the Cardigan area before moving to Lancashire, but was a frequent visitor because of his association with the Teifi Boating Club.
