Canadian Sailings was founded in 1982 by Brian O’N. Gallery, who was then publisher of SEAPORTS & THE SHIPPING WORLD, a monthly publication founded by his family in 1937. Canadian Sailings evolved from SEAPORTS and became a weekly publication. Initially, Canadian Sailings carried shipping schedules with some editorial coverage. However, as time went by, shipping schedules became less and less important, while editorial coverage about the marine industry became the mainstay of the publication. On January 1, 2010, its then owner, U.S.-based UBM Global Trade, sold Canadian Sailings to its Canadian management, which incorporated Great White Publications Inc. to operate the resulting business.
