Most boats will always perform better under sail with a good balanced sail plan.. which usually means headsail and mainsail in proper size/reefed configuration for the conditions esp if trying to get upwind.

In many areas sailing through narrow fairways is forbidden.. suggest you find out if that's the case where you are.

The day you describe sounds like a pretty typical beginners' experience.. you all survived it, the boat is presumably undamaged, chalk it up to a decent start. Things will get better from here on.
