Charter contract

I am planning to charter a boat in Greece and one paragraph in "Charter agreement" attracted my attention:

Itinerary:



To plan and to carry out the yacht’s itinerary in such a manner as to reach the port of call farthest away from the point at which the yacht must be returned to the owner (Turn-Around Point) within the first one third (1/3) of the charter period and that two days prior to the termination of the charter the yacht’s port of call shall lie at a distance not greater than forty (40) N.M. from the point at which the yacht is to be returned to the owner.



I understand what they are trying to achieve (insure that you don't go too far that you will be late to return), but it will inconvenience us a great deal since we are planning to spend a few days in the marina of origin (to do some sightseeing) and it will leave us almost no time to reach "Turn-Around-Point".
Is that a fair common clause in charter contract or something rather unusual?
