Wet bedding layer

We got a delivery of sharp sand to use as the bedding layer under some block paving.
Because of the location we couldnt leave it sat where it was delivered so we were just aiming to get the project done before this rain came back too hard.

We got one section laid but then the rain came on too heavy before we could get the second section done.

We covered it all over with a tarp but just had a look and the sharp sand is soaking.
Any advice on best way to get it dry enough to use as a bedding layer again?

Just leave it in situ?
Bag it up into a bulk bag and let it sit and drain?
Any ideas?
