Compositionally, this is a strong shot. I like how the water in the foreground, the boats and the sky form three distinct sets of "strata" that divides the picture. Also, there is a very faint vanishing point used from left to right.
Technically, the whites look a bit "over bright;" not blown out, but definitely drawing the attention of the viewer. In one respect, this is good because the challenge was boats. On the other hand, it really downplays the storm blowing in, and while it can be seen, it doesn't look to dark or ominous, like one associates with a storm. More contrast, or something like shadows/highlights might have given it a bit more "pop."
Overall, a nice shot that definitely meets the challenge.
