Woody's Water World

About Woody’s Water World


Woody’s Water World starts in 2011 as a company specialized in various water activities. Ewout (Woody) van Grondelle first started sailing in 1985. Since 1993 I found a new love: Africa. After finishing my bachelor’s degree in tourism I have been traveling Africa thoroughly. Alone with backpack, as travel guide and cook, on a BMW F650 and in a VW Beetle I have been in Gambia, Senegal, Egypte, Kenia, Tanzania, Malawi, Zambia, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Zuid-Afrika, Swaziland and last but not least Mozambique!


As ten-year-old I started writing my first games on the ZX – Spectrum in 1982. Since then computers have always been part of my (and more and more everyone else’s) life. For six years I have worked as software engineer. There are still dozens of restaurants and bars in the Netherlands and Belgium that work with my cash-register software. After six years behind the computer I thought it was time to spent some more time outdoors. I went to the nautical school in Enkhuizen and have been roaming the seas ever since. Computer knowledge comes in handy at see as well. I still combine computer work with sailing at sea.

Since 2007 I am sailing on Tall Ships around the world. To date I have logged 56.000 Nautical Miles, sailing from Antarctica to Spitsbergen and everywhere in between..
