If you have lazyjacks, it really isnt' all that necessary to tie in the reef points, as the lazy jacks can help keep the sail's bunt contained.
IMHO, the reef points only need to be tied in if you're going to be reefed for an extended period of time, say a long downwind passage in the trades. For the duration of a short summer storm... or a beat back from a daysail, I don't really think it is necessary.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
