Impressive and alarming indeed!
A few years ago I raced the King of the Derwent, a regatta run shortly after the Syd - Hob that often attracts a few of the big maxis. I remember Ichi Ban at the start, how the crews would get on starboard (right of way) at the windward end of the line and then just power up, hitting the line full-speed bang on the gun. Utterly terrifying but incredibly impressive to be around.
