His oldest brother, Kerry, was imprisoned and killed by members of the Khmer Rouge in 1978, after straying into Cambodian waters.

Hamill achieved a world record on an indoor rowing machine, and established and co-organises The Great Race. He also set up a trans-Tasman race in 2008, which he hopes to become biennial, and manages rowing teams.

Hamill stood in the Taranaki-King Country electorate in the 2008 New Zealand general election for the Green Party of Aotearoa New Zealand, and at 56 on the Green party list. He came third, with 8.41% of the vote, and losing to the incumbent, National’s Shane Ardern. However, he stated that his intention was not to win the seat, and did not “think that would be realistic.” but campaigned for the Green party vote. Hamill describes the Green Party as “the only party with a commitment to driving policy towards a sustainable future”.


He is most well known for his winning of the inaugural Atlantic Rowing Race with Phil Stubbs in 1997, with a world record time of forty-one days, two hours and fifty-five minutes. In the 1999 New Year Honours, Hamill and Stubbs were both appointed Members of the New Zealand Order of Merit, for services to ocean rowing; however Stubbs died in a plane crash before the honours were officially announced. Hamill wrote a book about this experience, The Naked Rower. In the next two such races, in 2001 and 2003, Hamill managed the New Zealand teams who won those races.

While on a trip from Singapore to Bangkok, Hamill’s older brother, Kerry, was captured, tortured, interrogated and killed in the S-21 prison by the Khmer Rouge in 1978, after being caught in a storm on his yacht, Foxy Lady, and straying into Cambodian waters. He was aged 28 at the time of his death. Hamill was 14 when he learned of his brother’s fate. The news of his brother’s fate caused Hamill’s other older brother, John, to commit suicide. In July 2009 Hamill testified against Duch, the leader of the prison, in the Extraordinary Chambers in the Courts of Cambodia, and Kerry Hamill’s alleged killer, who was on trial for crimes against humanity and premeditated murder. Hamill called the experience as “going to be quite scary” and “an opportunity to find [information] out”, but stipulated that he is against the death penalty, and did not want to see Duch killed, but that an ideal sentence would be forty years of imprisonment, “anything less than that would be a victory to the [Duch] defence team, I suspect”.
