Having slept through my alarm I was awoken by the excitable and exuberant Wayne, informing me that I had 15 minutes before the bus arrived to pick us up.  I therefore relinquished my typical anal folding, and with rare haste stuffed anything which didn't resemble furniture into my backpack.  Breakfast was also abstained from, as the thought chewing anything solid made me feel unnervingly dizzy.
Within what felt like seconds, I was in the boat company's office introducing myself with slurred enthusiasm to the other members of the crew before boarding the yacht.  An hour or so passed and I was starting to think that I had somehow managed to escape the hang-over.  Then disaster struck.  My battered yet vengeful liver finally metabolised the last remaining traces of alcohol in my blood stream, and with it spewed out a large quantity of toxins to change my mood from jolly to horribly unwell.
The next several hours were spent horizontal, shaking and wondering why I couldn't feel my hands and feet.  Eventually the numbness down-graded to pins and needles and with it I was able to drag myself to the side of the boat, in order to spray the Sprite I had drunk that morning into the Mediterranean.  This was not all bad however, as I was presented with a window of opportunity to successfully swallow my third anti-sickness tablet before the nausea returned.  The next few hours witnessed a surprising recovery, and by night time I was well again, having learned a valuable and obvious lesson not to get slaughtered the night before sailing.
On the whole the boat cruise was excellent.  Short sails into peaceful bays, punctuated by frequent dips in the cool turquoise sea.  It was relaxing, the food was great, and the rest of the group were a pleasure to spend three days with.  We were all fairly reluctant to get off the boat by the end, although most of us continued on to Olympos for much of the same.
