Even though it might be legal you'd still be a potentail hazard to yourself and
others on the water. I have portable bow and stern lights that you can borrow.

You're under 7 meters, so you only have to have an "all-round white light" which
may be a flashlight (torch) to illuminate the sail.
You don't even have to carry a fire extinguisher because you're an outboard and
you have a removable gas tank.
I know. I was stopped and inspected. My lights didn't work (what else it new?).
My extinguisher was in the "red" zone. I was passed by the CG inspection team.
I did have a "torch" that gleamed dimly in the noon-day sun, but it passed, too.
Here's the wording:
Power-driven vessels of less than 7 meters whose maximum speed cannot exceed 7
knots may exhibit an all-around white light, and if practicable sidelights
instead of the lights prescribed above, in International Waters only.
