Supakit (Yod) Duangngren

Outdoor Education Centre Manager

 

My name is Yod and I was born in Sattahip, Chonburi. My father is a navy officer, and his post led us to Phuket. From a young age, I was exposed to sailing and began my journey at the age of 10. I started with smaller boats such as the Optimist, Laser, and 470, and eventually worked my way up to larger boats like the Hobie 16 and Yacht. Throughout the years, I participated in many sailing competitions and was fortunate enough to win multiple awards.
After completing my education in electrical engineering, I landed a job, but soon realized that it was not the path I wanted to take. So, I made the decision to quit my job and start coaching sailing. I find great joy in being on a sailboat and am passionate about sharing my knowledge and experience with others, particularly children. My ultimate goal is to see the sailing community in Thailand grow and reach the same level of popularity and success as it does in places like Europe and America.
