Sad News

We are saddened to report the untimely death of Mark Ninnim on Thursday after a short illness.

Mark’s funeral will be held at Tynemouth crematorium on Friday 25th June at 1.30pm. Although the chapel is just for close family due to Covid restrictions there is lots of space outside chapel, with speakers/tv in place. Anyone unable to attend can watch the service online with username jima7158 and password 399191

Everyone is invited to join for a drink to celebrate Mark at Tynemouth sailing club following the service. If possible, bring a glass (wine/champagne) but disposable ones will be available if needed.

Any donations to RNLI please.

There are no dress requirements, but if desired, ladies may wear black head band or fascinator, and gents may wear club ties.

Mark has been associated with the club for the best part of 40 years, and a member for over 10 years. During this time he has been instrumental in gaining significant sponsorship for Bass Week.

Our thoughts are with Mark’s wife Natasha, and the rest of his family at this sad time.
