The history of our boats: Roco

 

Cuxton is home to this beautiful boat named Roco, but before docking in our marina it was owned by ‘Queen of the English Channel’, Alison Streeter MBE. Streeter is famous for having swum the English Channel a record 43 times and setting the world record for fastest female Channel swim. She is also the first woman to swim the Channel three times back-to-back, taking her 34 hours and 40 minutes. Streeter then became a coach for others attempting to swim the Channel, and Roco was the boat accompanying them.
