I don't see a problem with it. My first boat liked to sail with just a 120 Jenny, it was a 30 foot full keel ketch rig with a bowsprit. My last boat was a fin keel-er sloop and would sail OK on just the jenny until the wind picked up, but handled best with both. The problem is if the wind picks up you have fewer options in reducing sail without putting up a smaller jib.
