Terry Teague, Cadgwith, 2019
About this item
David George interviews Terry Teague at Cadgwith Cove on ‘Buller Day’, an annual gig rowing event. Terry used to row for Devoran Gig Club and was also a coxswain. Terry explains the different demands of rowing and coxing. He tells of an incident during the Newquay County Championships in 2000 when he was racing in ‘Golden Gear’ in rough conditions. 'Golden Gear' was hit by a wave as it entered the harbour. She was lifted out of the water and smashed into the harbour wall. Terry describes how he was thrown out and sustained bad cuts on his back from the barnacles on the wall. 'Golden Gear' was completely filled with water and was severely damaged which Ralph Bird of Devoran subsequently repaired.
