The Warriors On Water (No. 1) tries to edge out the JAX Fire Dragons Chix with Stix (No. 2) for the dragon boat races women's championship final. The races were part of the Paddles Up St. Pete Festival at Lake Maggiore on Saturday. The boats, which usually weigh about 800 pounds empty, hold paddlers, a drummer who sets the pace and a coxswain who steers the boat with a 9-foot paddle. A top crew can cover the typical 500-meter course in about 2 minutes, 25 seconds.
