Having never sailed, let alone reefed, a lug-rigged boat I can't pass comment. However, when reefing the bermudean rig of a Comet or similar the reefing line raises the clew (providing you remembered to slacken off the kicker), then bring the new tack down to the gooseneck while slackening off the halyard. Fasten the reef points (bungee cords in our case), tighten the halyard, and finally the kicker.
