Well

It would depend on the boat BUT a J24 for example with the bow on a fixed point anchored OR mourned will NOT luff the mainsail

It will do its best to sail forward and abuse you until the sail is down

Just like i sailed out of the Patchogue river for YEARS on a motorless dingy without issue the same thing being risky at best on the J24 going into the same place

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat
