The event was originally planned to be conducted on 04 December 2015 on the occasion of Navy day. However, the Navy Office Chennai cancelled all Navy Week celebrations including this function, since the Indian Navy was fully committed to the rescue and relief operations during Chennai floods in the first week of December.

The Prince of Arcot, senior officers from the three Defence services, Coast Guard, Police, Officials from Central/State Government, Chennai Port Trust, Industry, Academia and retired Naval officers, Consul Generals and other dignitaries graced the occasion.
