Default The one that wouldn't gel

I had a specific idea in mind for this photo. I waited a while and took a number of shots that were not it. This one isn't it either, but it was the closest attempt. I don't know whether it works or not, and it's too soon for me to have any distance to judge it. So, what do you think? Is there a coherent shot there?

I had the sense of spiraling birds replicated by spiraling boats, but they just wouldn't quite cooperate. The ordering would be delicate under the best of circumstances, but it really felt that there was a photo there to take that didn't have the same old structure. I take it from your response that this doesn't work at all. Ah, well...

I looked again after your explanation. I think it would have worked better if the sails were above the horizon, a birds in the air, sails in the air sort of thing.

Nice shot, though I agree with the suggestion on the sail being above the horizon. I moved the picture around on my computer screen and like it best with just one bird in the shot. Of course that not what you were going for so not much help, sorry.
