Thanks in advance
Are the lines connected to anything on the exit (clew) side?
If not, you can use them for whatever comes to your mind.
I would use one for outhaul (you already mentioned that).
The next one or both as reefing lines to be attached to the leech. To do that, you need the corresponding attachment points on the leech of the sail, say at 1/3 and 2/3 height.
Then, on the mast side - either cleats
, winches to secure or blocks to turn the lines back to the cockpit
You can take third line out if you believe one reef is enough - I would replace it with a thin line to thread proper line when/if needed in the future.
