We champion play to help seriously ill children


On December 12th 2022, Team This Way Up will begin the challenge of rowing 3,000 miles across the Atlantic, from la Gomera in The Canary Islands to Antigua, taking part in the annual Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge. 

The four man crew of Ed Ogden, Ollie Browne, Jos Pape and James Peet will row, eat and sleep on repeat for 35 days (assuming the wind blows in the right direction!)

The reason they are putting themselves through this? To raise money for Starlight, the charity that uses the power of play to make the experience of illness and treatment better for children and their families.

Find out more about the challenge and our preparations on our website and our instagram account @teamthiswayup or Facebook @team this way up

When the race starts you will be able to track the team live on the website and also via the app 'YB races'. 

Many thanks for your kind donation!
