If your Javelin's main sail has a reef point then you should learn how to rig it with a reef. If not Denise's advice to just use the main without the jib is good.
Many 1 Class dinghy racers do not have reef points and they may not be allowed by class racing rules. That doesn't mean you couldn't add a reefing system as long as you don't use it while racing.
I was out on a Sunfish this summer in 15 - 20 kts and it was a blast! Lots of hiking out and very wet but getting the hull up on a plane is a priceless experience.
