Rhine River 40th Blessing Anniversary Cruise for Couples Blessed in July or October 1982

Rhine River Day Cruise on Sunday 21st August 2022

If you were blessed in New York on 1st July 1982, or in Korea on 14th October of the same year –
congratulations!! It’s coming up to your 40th Blessing anniversary.

Why not combine a holiday in Germany this summer with a great celebration and chance to catch up with old friends?

The German BFD is organising a Rhine River Blessing Anniversary Cruise and we would like to extend the invitation to any who participated in either of the 1982 Blessings, wherever they now live. Come as a couple, or with family members, or on your own – we would love to see as many of you as possible.

When: Sunday 21 August 2022

Starting point Koblenz at 10am with a short sail down the Mosel giving a view of Koblenz old town, then continuing down the Rhine to Oberwesel with ninety minutes to explore this beautiful old town.
Sail back to Koblenz, returning at 6pm.

The price will depend on the number of participants, but it is extremely unlikely that the individual cost will be more than €90, which includes ship hire and a festive buffet. Children under 18 travel free; buffet free for under 4’s and reduced price for under 12’s.

The registration form is in German but is not too hard to figure out. Please use this link and register each person separately.

A pre-payment of €50 per adult is requested before 15th June 2022 and the full price is to be paid one week before the event. Bank details will be provided later.

Covid restrictions have been largely lifted in Germany and we do not anticipate that, for example, non-vaccinated status will be a problem. Self-testing before participation is recommended.

Koblenz is a beautiful town and you might want to consider spending one or two days there, or in one of the picturesque villages along the Mosel, on either side of the celebration.

Please spread the word and pass on the invitation to any of our fellow celebrants!

With very best wishes,
