Introduction to the instructor: Keung Siu Fai 

Keung Siu Fai is an old fisherman. He is also a senior yacht player and has more than ten years of teaching experience. He grew up in Ap Lei Chau and has lived around boats and yachts since he was a child. 
 
Instructor Keung loves marine activities and driving. As an instructor, he can not only combine work as a hobby, but also experience the joy of sailing. He is friendly and attentive in teaching. In his lesson, students can master driving skills in a short time. He believes that the Aberdeen typhoon shelter is the best place to learn safe driving. If you can drive freely in Aberdeen, there is no place you cannot handle it.
 
Observing the traffic conditions on the sea and learning to communicate with other boats are the difficulty of driving a yacht. To promote the development of the maritime industry, Instructor Jiang wants to nurture a new generation of "captains". Therefore, he is happy to share sailing skills, experience and insights. He believes that when more people are proficient in sailing, it can make marine activities more accessible and familiar to the public.

For example, he is the Assistant to Chairman in Hong Kong Fishery Alliance and member of Council for Sustainable Development. He is also the Chairman of Hong Kong Fisheries Promotion Co. Limited and Aberdeen Ferry Company Limited.
