Once again thank you.
There is the old adage of P.O.S.H (Port Over Starboard Home) that the Europeans used on the old transatlantic voyage.

This where the word "Posh" came from.

This meant that you should be on the port (left) side of the ship when going west and on the starboard (right) side when going eastbound. This will give you more sun and warmth during your voyage.
