Keep cool during this week's heatwave!

Posted: Updated:

RICHLAND, WA.-- If you're still deciding on Sunday at the Richland Regatta, or anywhere else outside, you'll want to plan ahead. We made sure to get some tips from 5-liter racer, Jeff Bernard.

"Just keep drinking fluids, it's very important," said Jeff, "I used to be bad at it and I had issues with heat in the past, so I learned to just keep drinking water all day long. It's not a joke so drink water and Gatorade!"

 Jeff also told us boat race drivers can deal with up to 130 degrees in the cockpit of their boats. So if anyone knows how to cool down, it's them!
