Hamish Mcdonald

Hamish originally joined the club in the winter of 2014 as a part of the STAP program. This program set the basis for Hamish be crowned the champion GPS sculler in 2015. He then went on to stroke the St Josephs College First VIII to their first HOTR win in over 40 years. At the national championships, Hamish joined club mates Tom Barnes, Tobey Starkey, Henry Kamp and Ben Doyle to take a Silver in the U19 4+, as well as claiming another Silver in the Joeys eight.

The SRC combination, made up of current Joeys, Scots, and Shore boys, was selected as the JM4+ to compete at Rio de Janeiro at the Junior World Championships in 2015, where the crew placed 5th.

Hamish enjoyed a successful U21 season at the club, taking out the U21 Coxed Four as well as rowing for NSW to take out the Noel F Wilkinson Cup in the Men’s Youth Eight.

After stroking the 2016 Thames cup which was unfortunately disqualified, Hamish travelled to Cal Berkeley to undertake his university studies. There he earned 6 victories in the 2017 season, culminating in a Silver medal in the 2V at the IRA’s. After not racing in 2018, Hamish returned to SRC, where we’re looking forward to seeing him lay down some serious watts in the 2019 racing season.
