Singapore's sailors have bagged five golds at the ongoing SEA Games held at the Ngwe Saung beach in Myanmar, making it a haul of five golds, two silvers and five bronzes for the Republic.

The team's Optimist sailors made a comeback after coming in second-best to Thailand earlier in the week, taking both the individual titles. Edward Tan bagged the boys' trophy while Fathin Rasyiqin won the girls' event.

Elizabeth Yin won the Laser Radial, a one-person Olympic-class dinghy, while Kimberly Lim and Savannah Siew were untouchable in the girls' 420 class.

Cecilia Low and Priscilla Low were also victorious in the women's 470 class.

Singapore took silver in the RS:One Girl event (Ynez Lim), while the bronzes came from the RS:One Boy (Wallace Gan), Laser Standard (Scott Glen Sydney), Half-Rater (Anthony Kiong & Stanley Chan), 420 Boy (Jonathan Yeo & Tan Jen E) and 470 Men (Darren Choy & Joel Pang).

Out of the 13 events contested, Singapore failed to win a medal in just the RS:One Open category, where Merrick Phang finished fourth.
