PH sailing ends drought, wins SEAG gold

SUBIC — The Philippines made quite the splash in FE28ER match racing in the 30th Southeast Games Monday, topping the four-team field at the Yacht Club. 

The Filipinos found themselves at the head of the pack at the end of eight races with a 7.0-point total.

The golden crew was captained by Joel Mejarito, and composed of Ridgely Balladares, Rubin Cruz Jr., Whok Dimapilis, Richly Magsanay, and Edgar Villapena.

The host country beat defending champion Singapore, who settled for silver this time around with 13.0 points. Bronze medalist Thailand wound up with 21.0 points.

In the last regional meet, the Philippines stood outside the podium, with Singapore, Malaysia, and Thailand ranking first to third.

This is the Filipinos’ second gold mint in the sport of sailing. Last Saturday, Emerson Villena and Troy Tayong ruled the men’s international 470 event.

The Singaporean squad included captain Colin Ng, Yuanzhen Xu, Roy Tay, Anthony Kiong, Stanley Chan, and Daniella Ng. Meanwhile, the Thai team included captain Natthawut Paenyam, Anusorn Ngamrit, Atiwat Chomtongdee, Totsapon Mahawichean, Hanphol Chavasilp, and Nutpatsorn Wachirapongsin.
