To motor sail easily inshore with winding rivers , if the mainsail is fully battened , its a snap.

Conventional sails are a PIA with a constantly varying course.
Motorsailing winding rivers can be done a few ways. My gaff rigged main (no battens) and club footed jib (self tacking) are about as easy to operate as anything.
