Visa Requirements for a Canadian entering the US on a UK boat

I'm interested in joining a UK flagged yacht travelling from Tortola to the US. As a Canadian, do I require a visa? I'm confused by the all of the B1/B2 and visa waiver info out there. Noonsite says

All nationalities, whether entering and/or leaving the US by private yacht MUST obtain a visa in advance. Such visitors CANNOT enter the USA for the first time under the Visa Waiver Programme. The only exceptions are Canadian and Mexican citizens who are permenent residents in their own country.
But I can't find this listed on an official US government website and wanted to double check.

No you don't need any visa to enter the US ever, if you hold a Canadian passport.......... You need a Visa to work, the visa waiver issue is for those that don't need a visa to enter the US like Aussies and Brits, they have to set it up a little differently............
