A laycan is the window of time, allocated by the charterer to the shipowner, for the arrival of a ship.
So if an agreed laycan is 01-10 December then the ship must arrive within these dates in order to avoid a possible penalty.
The ship in question is missing the cancelling date and looks like arriving on the 11th of December. But far from being mad the charterer is very happy...
