Yes, although you dont have the forward genoa track show in the diagram, and your aft track may service, I assume it would although its is hard to say from the picture.

Note the diagram for a high clew #2 would seem a reaching configuration, pretty sketchy as a closehauled plan, as you would use your 150% to 18 or so, most beercan racers dont have a #2. I would think you would delay your reefs 3-4 knots versus this schedule.
