Singapore sailing braces itself for gold rush
Singapore currently sit top of the sailing medal standings at the SEA Games with five gold and three silver medals.
There are 12 more medal events still to be decided over the next two days and the sailors from the host nation will be keeping an eye on rivals from Thailand and Malaysia, primarily.
At least two gold medals for the Republic are assured today - one for Darren Choy and Jeremiah Yeo in the men's 470, and for Jodie Lai in the Female Youth Optimist.
The women's 470 final will be another procession with all three positions confirmed after nine races - Malaysia first, Thailand second and Singapore third.
All eyes will be on the Male Youth Optimist (under-16) final, as Singapore's Daniel Ian Toh tries to play catch up against Malaysia's Mohammad Fauzi Kaman Shah.
All four races will be held at National Sailing Centre.
Gold medals should be bagged by the hosts at Marina Bay tomorrow in the Male Laser Standard, Male and Female Keelboat and Female Laser Radial Team events, after Singapore's sailors recorded zero losses so far in their round-robin races.
Sealing the win in the Female Skiff 49erFX event is also a formality for Singapore's Griselda Khng and Sara Tan.
