Really rhe first thing to learn Starboard (pr star'bd)(right hand side of the ship facing towards the bow) derived from steering board side of the ship that the steering oar or board was lashed or attached, (green light side)
Port, (left hand side of the ship facing towards the bow) the side of the boat which was presentrd to the pier, wharf, quay, dock or "port"(because the steering board was in the way)(Red light side)
Remembered by:There is a little "red""port" left.
Second thing to learn.
Bow,pointy bit at the front. Stern, opposite end to the bow. (Can sometimes be pointy too). Regards Ted who spent some not inconsiderable time racing and cruising on the east coast of Oz.
