YA book from 80’s early 90’s - teenage girl and yacht races

Name that Book

I was having a discussion with my daughter and was telling her about a book I read a few times when I was a young adult. My memory has so many holes I can’t remember the author or the title.

Basically a poor teenage girl worked at the marina cleaning boats and she saved money to buy her some fancy schooner boat shoes. I remember in the book there was a big yacht race that was an overnight race and she begged to be part of the crew. I think there was a romance in there but that’s the most I can remember right now.

Any help or insight would be amazing helpful.
