Doc Sam Award

The Doc Sam Memorial Award

Traveling Trophy Donated by: The Solhaug Family & Bruce Nicolle in 1996

Keeper Trophy Donated Annually by: The Solhaug Family & Bruce Nicolle

The Doc Sam Award has been donated in memory of Doctor Sam Solhaug who died in 1996 and who was a long time and original member of the Wayzata Yacht Club. Known to all as Doc Sam, he loved sailing and would spend the majority of his free time from spring to fall sailing. He also enjoyed racing and had a persistence and "never quit" attitude that was more important than wining and that he instilled and encouraged in others.

Each year, the WYC Race Committee presents the Doc Sam Award to a WYC member in good standing, who has demonstrated Doc Sam's love of sailing, love of racing and in particular his persistence and "never quit" attitude during races.
