Jan Wouters' Website
Welcome to my website!  
I was born in 1966 in the university city of Leuven in Belgium.  I grew up in Leefdaal, a small village between Leuven and Brussels.  Most of my youth was spent exploring the country side using my bicycle and skateboard.  Sailing, but mainly windsurfing became my passion from the age of 11. Trying to spend most weekends at the Belgian coast became a serious obsession. Windsurfing brought me to South Africa in 1986-87 where I fell in love with Cape Town and Africa;
'You can take the boy out of Africa, but you can't take Africa out of the boy...'
I finished my Marketing studies in Brussels in 1999, followed by a one year backpacking trip around the world.  I started cycling seriously and opened a bicycle shop (Pro Bike) in Tervuren, Belgium.  Cycling holidays to exotic places of the world became another passion.  I moved to Cape Town in 1998.  After travelling to 60 countries, it's still my favourite place to live!  
 It's in this beautiful city that I met my partner, Jo Charnock. Jo's adventurous lifestyle and my cycling passion saw us cycling (on folding bicycles!) from Cairo to Cape Town in 2007-08.  Together we run Indigo yacht management, a professional yacht delivery company.
