Re Transatlantic crossing in November
Thank you for the reply to my question of what side of the ship, if you sail westbound transatlantic in November, gets the most sun on the verandahs. You said looking towards the left of the bow of the ship ....Sorry if I'm a little slow, but do you mean when you're on the ship, or looking from the shore at the ship? Just want to be double sure. Once again thank you.
Re: Re Transatlantic crossing in November
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.
Mike, you have it backwards. The phrase is often associated with Port Outbound Starboard Home for trips to India and Far East so that you avoided the heat from the sun.
Alas, we are both wrong according to the Oxford Dictionary:
We did not know this and have a JS on the Starboard hump for our TA from England to Florida. Will we get any sun?
