Drinkling Port with your left hand is not the right answer. It is customary at the end of any military dinner that when the port comes out, you pour your port and pass the bottle to the person on your left. Hense Port to the left.

Hi, there is a saying that covers it all and if you rememember it you will be ok
There is no RED PORT LEFT in the CAN, ie,
Red is the port side light and channel marker colour
PORT is on the left side
CAN is the shape of the port marker
Hope this helps
Cheers Kerry

Quite right SD. Makes you wonder why he changed his designation to "Senior Member" when he has only 5 posts. I would watch out for this guy--seems he has a problem with basic honesty.

Actually, depends on whether your in IALA-A or IALA-B. In the use... the returning channel markers kept to port are GREEN. Your statement is only true for half of the navigational world effectively... Again, might want to do a bit more research. While the lights of the ship do not change color, depending on where you sail, the colors of the buoys do.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Either that or a very tenuous connection to reality.

[QUOTE=ImASonOfaSailor]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?[/

I use the size of the words to remember:
Port Starboard
Red Green
Left Right

Port Red Leftwing - Easy.

Memo to Alfa - Don't be a complete dick son. There are already enough demented souls out there, we don't need another. When someone finally has the decency to throttle the current mad bitch then you can have your turn. In the meantime acknowledge you were wrong. Petulance is unbecoming.

I use red on my port tall tales and green on the starboard. Just like your running lights it tells the other boat what the do , stand on or give way. They obviously won't see those colors, but I do and it is a quick reminder. Mostly I do it now for my crew to know who has rights.
