It is usually provided that the ship 'shall with all convenient speed proceed to the port of loading'1. This term is not a condition of the contract2. Hence, if the ship is unduly delayed on her voyage to the port of loading3, or even if she deviates on her way there4, the charterer is not necessarily discharged from his obligation to provide a cargo, although, in the absence of any exception or other term5 excusing the delay6, he is entitled to recover damages for breach of contract7.
