Ryan Lo led the way as he claimed his third gold in as many SEA Games outings in the men’s ILCA 7.
Isaac Goh, meanwhile, struck gold in the mixed ILCA 4 open while the pair of Ellyn Tan and Chia Teck Pin won the mixed 29er open event.
Singapore also collected silver medals in four other events on Monday, courtesy of Jania Ang in the women’s ILCA 6, Elkan Reshawn Oh in the men’s windfoil iQFOiL, Jayson Tan in the men’s windsurfing RS:X and Ethan Chia and Cheryl Yong in the mixed Optimist.
