When going from the Bay into the Channel you are actually moving Upbound.
You're right, but from the bay side it is a little counter intuitive since you are coming into a harbor, that was there long before they dug the canal.

Read your Sailing Directions for Europe. That will tell you that you are in IALA Region A and that it is Green to starboard when entering port. The shape of the bouys are the same though. Nun to starboard and Can to port on entering.
IALA Region B (What North & South Americans are use too) Comprises of North and South America, Korea, Japan and the Philipines.
IALA Region A Is all other countries.
The only real difference is that the color is reversed between the two regions but the bouys are the same. But in Region A you may see more Cardinal Bouys. So be aware of how to pass them also.

When going to New places please use the Sailing Directions or the Coast Pilots. Both are about the same thing but one (Coast Pilot) is for USA and its posessions and Sailing Directions are for every place else. And you have assorted volumes of each to peruse and learn from.
Have Fun in your travels
