Racing a P-30 with an 85% / adding an inside track

We've been racing on Lake Ontario in some pretty heavy weather this year, often in the low -mid 20 knot range. I have a storm jib that's brand new and never out of the bag. I think it's a 90% or so. We almost always sail a windward leeward course usually 3-4 miles, so not enough time for a sail change. Has anyone tried a head sail this small racing. if so how does she do, especially to weather. My sense is she might not point so well ?? So far we've stuck with my 135 and maybe a reef in the main.

Thanks
