Terry won his first maiden eight in 1951 whilst rowing for the University Club in Perth. He was selected into the 1954 Western Australia King’s Cup crew which finished fifth. He won the WA Champion Pairs in 1955 with Dick Kernot and coxed by future Perth Lord Mayor Peter Nattrass. He blossomed in Melbourne under the tutelage of Alan Jacobsen stroking two winning King’s Cup crews, rowing in two Olympic Games and in the first World Championships. He was a very strong oarsman.
