If you're on a ship and facing the bow (the front of the ship), larboard is to your left. Larboard is the left side of a ship. The more common and modern term used instead of larboard is 'port'. They mean the same thing but 'larboard' is traditional. Port was officially adopted by the Royal Navy in 1844 because people could confuse larboard with starboard when a storm was up and the winds whipping words every which way.
