Jason it is just about impossible to hurt a Mirage 24. They are a very heavily built boat. I drilled some holes in the transom of mine many years ago to install a split back stay and it was 7/8" thick of solid glass. The rest of the hull is also solid.
That being said, do not be so lazy, you will never get true sailing performace on one sail alone.
Try it you will like it.
