This is possible if the person standing on the east looks west side and the person standing on the west looks east side.

Both were standing facing the Captain....
- The standing on Right was facing West of the Captain
- The Standing on Left was facing East of the Captain.........
Hence the sailors were standing on opposite sides of the ship but could see each other clearly at the same time
