I have the same problem, each time I ride under the rain. The water splashes onto by back, then goes down onto my seat. My seat turns into a paddle and my butt gets wet.
I have added an 20cm wide aluminium sheet between the rear light and the registration plate. There is a lot less splash but I will still get my butt wet after 45 minutes.
Any idea how to stop getting splashed in the back?
I have reached the point where I am thinking buying another bike

@Delbert: As I said previously I have added a 20cmx40cm underneath the mudguard. It is much better, I can ride for longer before getting my butt wet.
Today, I was washing my bike with the hose. I started to splash the registration plate with the hose like the water is coming from the rotating tyre. To my amazement, a lot of water ended up on the top of the bike. Reason: the water goes between the reg plate and the sheet I added.
I have just ordered another aluminium sheet and cutting tool to fill the gap between the reg plate and the sheet already in place.
I ll let you know the results.
