hard to port
Explanation: Check out your context. If there is urgency [this guy is the bowman and calling aft to the driver -which is what we call them unofficially, proper term helmsman] because maybe he has seen something come up they are going to hit, or it is at the start of a race, when everybody is on top of each other jockeying for position at the start line, then HARD to port would be more appropriate.
