Cape Town - The body of a 79-year-old man was found floating in the Simon's Town Harbour in Cape Town, the National Sea Rescue Institute said on Thursday.

Spokesperson Craig Lambinon said the body was found tangled in rope between two boats on Wednesday morning.

He said the man had lived on a yacht within the harbour.

"While it is suspected that the man may have fallen into the water the previous evening, while returning to his yacht from the False Bay Yacht Club, police have opened an inquest docket for investigation."
