A silver cup donated by the Hawaiian Brewing Company for the original 1943 Women’s 6 event, was returned to perpetual competition in 1991 in memory of Bob Fischer, a strong supporter and coach of women’s paddling.
Fischer coached and steered the winning women’s crew in 1943. He was actively involved in canoe racing in Hawaii for more than 50 years, as a coach, paddler and race official, and was a founder and officer of the Hawaiian Canoe Racing Association and Oahu Hawaiian Canoe Racing Association.
The trophy is awarded to the winning Novice B crew to celebrate Bob’s commitment to the women’s paddling program.
