Harry made his mark at the GB Rowing Team senior and U23 trials in April 2018, finishing second among a strong group of senior scullers. That performance saw him selected in the single scull for the first two World Cup regattas of 2018, and the World Championships. At the Glasgow 2018 European Championships, he won a bronze medal alongside Jack Beaumont in the double scull, having replaced Angus Groom at late notice.
