The event takes place on the first weekend of September every year and has been held since 1996. Mermaid charters were hired, and the event was generously hosted by the Seaview Yacht Club.

This year, the trophy was retained by Sotheby’s whose team was helmed by George Gordon, assisted by colleagues Sara Alavi Kia, Sarah Eisen and Enahoro Ohioma-Belo.

In second place came the dealers’ team which was helmed by Anna Cunningham from Agnews, assisted by Chloe Stead from Colnaghi and Toby Campbell from Rafael Valls.
