"... sailing ships generally point downwind, the aft accommodations have to contend with the least amount of odor."
Aft, in naval terminology is, towards the stern (rear) of the ship.Downwind; generally means the wind direction is from the rear(or aft) of the ship towards the front. Hence least odorous bunking in the aft.
