Starboard and Port tacks?

I always forget on how to remember what side is what, I do know Port is the left side of the boat. How do all of you remember this, what about another boat that is headed toward you who has the right of way? I was told if the sails are on the left side (port side) then you are on a starboard tack? Is this true what are some tricks to remember this?
