Biography

Born in Novi Sad (present-day Serbia), Simo Nikolić studied marine engineering in Rijeka (now in Croatia) and mechanical engineering in Ljubljana (now Slovenia). He had started sailing as a teenager, and partnered up with Antun Grego in the International Snipe class. In 1966, the won the European title in Karlshamm, while finishing runners-up in 1964 and 1968. In 1967 the duo also won a bronze at the World Championships. As the Snipe was not an Olympic sailing class, the duo switched to the Flying Dutchman, in which they raced at the 1968 and 1972 Games. At the latter occasion, they claimed a 5th place, the best ever ranking by a Yugoslav crew. After retiring, Nikolić served as a sailing judge. He was also president of his club, Galeb ("Seagull") of Kostrena (near Rijeka), and vice-president of the Croatian physical education board.
