The "Eric Fisher Clubman of the Year Award" was instituted in 1990, and has been an important part of the Perth Radio Sailing Club. The award recognises Eric Fisher, a long standing and highly regarded club member, who contributed an enormous amount to the club over many years.
Eric commenced racing radio controlled yachts in the 1970s and built and raced many boats. Eric also was a very good sailmaker. In addition to Eric's own sailing, he was always willing and able to assist others with building, technical advice and ideas to help both the individual, as well as the club and the sport in general.
Any time the club was in need, Eric was always willing to undertake tasks to assist. Eric built a rescue dinghy when the club required one, as well as doing administrative work on the committee. He was a stalwart of the club for many years.
