Biography

Together with his bowman Jörg Schmall, Jörg Spengler was among the world's best Tornado sailors in the 1970s. The duo sailed out of the Yacht Club Noris, where Spengler, an educated architect, had designed the clubhouse.

Spengler was part of the "Golden Olympic Generation" of German sailing sport, and won his bronze medal during the most successful period of German Olympic sailing. In 1976 Frank Hübner and Harro Bode (Lüdenscheid / Hannover) won a gold medal in the 470 class, Jörg and Eckart Diesch won gold in the Flying Dutchman, Jochen Schümann took the first of his three gold medals in the Finn class and Dieter Below and his Berlin Soling crew earned a bronze medal.

Spengler won the European Championship in 1970 with non-Olympian van Salzem and the World Championship in 1975 with Schmall. In 1977 Spengler defended his World title with non-Olympian Rolf Dullenkopf.
