No problem kayak sailing on rivers, one of the best places for it in my opinion. When John Macgregor first invented the recreational sailing kayak 150+ years ago, it was the canals of Europe he had in mind.

I sail mine the Rideau River in Eastern Ontario, which is smaller than the Mohawk. Its the great thing about sailing kayaks, you can paddle them upwind in a river and sail them down.
