Without a jib you wonít be able to heave-to. The jib provides the counteracting force downwind to the reefed mainís force to windward. If you need to stop and blew out the headsail you can try laying a hull. I would think that would be uncomfortable in a J24 in extreme weather but it might be the only choice.
All the best,
