    They are, but after the "previous year months" pages. I just bought a copy
    at the Celestaire booth at Pacific Sail Expo and they had it, it does
    contain all of that, it's just "hidden".
    I resisted buying an Astra III deluxe. Since I only race week-ends, I don't
    really have a practical use for it. But if I go again this week-end, I'm not
    sure I won't buy one...
