I have a feeling that the real answer to your question depends on the details, such as how the sails are cut, their age and how the rigging is tuned. Kathryn Grace (M32) with the old sails, had trouble tacking and pointing while the new sails have made all the difference. Subtle changes in tuning adjusted the weather/lee helm nicely. She balances and sails nicely with jib and mizzen, especially when there's a lot of wind, and not too well with jib and main.
