Great opportunity, great light, great location.

Unfortunately, it's all a bit central and there is no real centre of attention. I would suggest cropping the foreground above the rowing boat and from either the left or the right to move the sun off centre. I don't slavishly do the rule of thirds, but here I think it would make the composition more dynamic.
The exposure is pretty good and your Fuji has done well to capture the colours in both the sky and the water.

Great potential in this pic, IMHO.

For me, leave it alone. Very, very good and, here,the central composition works well.

As the scene itself is very busy, I can live with it being a very busy composition. However, I've done a mod to simplify the comp and let the flow of the boats point towards the sun as the main settling point. Niot saying it's any better, just an alternative view

Nice composition and light but perhaps not as colourful as it could be, i've added a mod that is a slightly tighter crop and have added a ND filter to help drop the exposure on the sky and slightly enhanced the saturation to really bring out the colours.
