I don't recommend using any colored lights, since they may confuse other boaters as to what you are.
A flashlight, if really necessary, is probably the best idea, with a red filter to preserve your night vision.
However, after you've sailed at night a while, it gets pretty easy to tell what is going on with the sails using your other senses—like hearing, and by feeling the change in the motion of the boat.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
