Well, no, to tell the truth, I have red and green lamps for port &
starboard ...
Much easier to remember!

Popeye.

But my sailor friends (that is salty sailors and
not freshwater Lake Superior types) use left and right, not port and starboard!

It has already led us into muddy waters :>)

I do personally believe that corners (positions) never change, only the
dancers move - as someone has already said. And as right is always on the
right no matter where you go, and left is on the left, saying the 'the other
side' may do - there are no P's in the wording and not many 's' sounds, so
should be able to roll of the tongue quite easily (p, s, and t - notoriously
difficult to say especially added in one word 'position').
