17 brave teams of 10 took to the Isle of Wight Day ‘It’s a knockout’ arena to do battle on epic scale in the pouring, unrelenting rain. The Isle of Wight Day team salute our ‘It’s a Knockout’ contestants for the true Island grit that they displayed this Isle of Wight Day, Saturday (22nd September). From battling slippery slides to the bubble pit, the team spirits remained high throughout even when soaked through.
