Does the Getaway sail have reefing points? If not, can they be put in by a sail maker?

It might be difficult to reef the sail without a boom. You can definitly have the put in, but I woudl really think about the need for them. In heavy winds you can furl the jib and sheet the main in tight (making it flat, thus less lift) and travel out (spilling wind off the main) to depower the boat.
