This is a page from the book I was talking about.
So from a physics point of view the inner side of the curve will have faster water.
But from a practical point of view and what I have seen myself the movement of soil from the outer to the inner sides means that the inner side shoals making the outer side deeper and the deeper water is usually faster.
The end result is that due to draft requirements it seems like it is most likely the outer side of the curve is more likely to have navigable water.
At least that is what I have seen.
