Richard,

 

It seems that there is no special permit required.

 

http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/work/apply-who-nopermit.asp#crew

 

If you have a seaman's identity card and a UK passport you are legal (especially if you have a letter of employment from the yacht in hand).

"International seafarers travelling to Canada to join ships as crew members require a valid passport for entry as well as a seafarer's identity document. They also require a temporary resident visa, unless they are citizens of a country that is exempt from the requirement."

 

British citizens are exempt.
