A partially furled 150% in mid-20s breeze will serve poorly for anything and run as a chance of damaging the sail which is not heavy enough for that wind strength.

You need to get a smaller jib, something close to 100-110 would be good. You can chase adding an inner forestay, IMHO a lot of effort and cost rather than just switch sails when necessary.

You are about 20 knots short of needing a storm sail.

If you proceed with an inner stay, be sure your "padeye" is connected to strong framing as it will subject to high loads, the back of an anchor locker often can serve.
