Aborted IOW

I had intended to go round the pile (Isle of Wight) again, but conditions aren't ideal. I takeoff and get as far as Ropley, but the cloudbase closes in so that I'm down to about 1000' - far too uncomfortable. I turned back and flew around clouds a bit, but it got worse so I return back to Popham and grounded.

Pete bravely attempts a few circuits, but it has got even worse - he reports that you can't really tell where cloud ends and the mist begins.
