WAIT A MINUTE! what if the two shores happen to be Islands? and your boat is between them? Wouldnt the "lee" of the westerly island be on your left and the "windward" island be on your right? Of course the boat would have the usual wind and lee sides. Now lets say you are standing on the island on the boats right, You are now on a windward shore, Correct? I think the words to lee or to wind work here. How do you suppose the coconuts got there?
