11 ways to stay cool on the river

It’s as easy as falling off a boat.

#1

Jump in

Jump in again! (and stay cool)

Instant relief.

(And it’s free.)

#2

Stay hydrated

Stay hydrated! (and stay cool)

You’ll do better with water in your system.

(Unless you’re a Volkswagen.)

#3

Stay in the shade

Find some shade! (and stay cool)

You’ll do better if you’re not in the direct sun.

(Unless you’re a lizard.)

#4

Wear sunscreen

Wear sunscreen! (and stay cool)

Burned skin radiates heat.

(And hurts.)

#5

Wear a hat

Wear a hat! (and stay cool)

Portable shade.

#6

Say “yes” to the boat slide

Boat slide! (and stay cool)

More than once.

(Trust us.)

#7

Wear a bandana

(and keep it wet)

Wear a bandana! (and stay cool)

A wet bandana around your neck is like a wet bandana around your neck.

(Plus: Katherine Hepburn style!)

#8

Wear a cotton shirt

(and keep it wet)

Wear a cotton shirt! (and stay cool)

Wearing a wet shirt is like artificially perspiring.

(Plus: JT style!)

#9

Get in a waterfight

Get in a waterfight! (and stay cool)

We have a love-hate relationship with those Stream-Machine things.

(But it’s mostly love when it’s mostly hot.)

#10

Wear sunglasses

Wear sunglasses! (and stay cool)

There are two kinds of cool.

(And it’s uncool to lose your sunglasses, so: Chums.)

#11

Jump in again

Jump in! (and stay cool)

There’s no limit.

(And it’s always free.)
