Technically there are some problems. Shutter speed seems too fast, and ISO as a consequence is too high. Stopping down to f/8 in the middle of the range when f/5.6 is perfectly good was unnecessary, as well as f/11 at 300mm. Due to long distance/haze, processing IMO would benefit from some extra contrast.

BTW, was it original 75-300 or 75-300 II?

Well spotted. Good points. OP, next time perhaps try for F6.7 (the 75-300 should be almost exactly the same between f6.7 and f8), 1/1250 and keep ISO low and auto. These are the settings I use for birding, with pretty good results.

ISO 1000 should be fine usually, unless the subject is fairly small and fine details. I think these boats often qualify.

Other than that, great shots. Wish I could come and watch.
