SIT AT/ON/TO MY RIGHT?

SIT AT/ON/TO MY RIGHT?
 
My question is:

Is it correct to say:

Sarah was sitting at my right.
Sarah was sitting on my right.
Sarah was sitting to my right.

Thank you for your help!!

I reckon they┬┤re all okay, although personally I ┤d say that Sarah was sitting on my right.
 
Hope that helps!
 
All the best,
 
Charles.

as far as I know directions right and left takes "on" as a preposition.
 
I agree with cookingongas, however I am no native speaker like him.

I ┤d say they were all correct.

Sitting to my right... usually implies some distance though like the person is a chair away... whereas the others would mean the person is beside you... normally...
