Being Outbid - how does this work?

I know it is probably a bit premature to start discussing CN rules but hopefully someone has the answer or we can at least start speculating until we actually play!
I seem to have the rules pretty much figured out with the exception of how bidding works.
Let's say I go first and I put a ship with 3 coins on a particular Port.
The next guy also wants this port's cargo and places a ship with 4 coins.
The third player also wants it (it is a REALLY good cargo at this port!) and places a ship with 5 coins.
Does the port go to the guy who placed 5 coins? Seems rather unfair to the player who goes first. Or does the first player simply leave his ship there and add more coins next turn, thus "freezing" this port and all it's assets until next turn?
I am very confused about this - not too clear imo.
