Sweat and Sprayskirts

I have a nylon coated sprayskirt with nylon tunnel. I have been getting condensation (I assume from sweat) on the inside of the deck portion when I paddle. Eventually, it makes for wet lap. The tunnel is a snug fit (I'm large) so no airflow there.

Anybody have this problem? It gets kind of wet inside, which is what I got a sprayskirt to avoid (although it does a good job with spray, paddle drops, and waves). I don't like to paddle open cockpit in waves, and even on flat water the drips from the paddle make it to the deck area. I have drip rings, but still get some water on the deck, so open cockpit is not a great thing.

Solutions?
