A 7.8 sail is quite small for such a big board. I haven't used anything smaller than 10.0 on the Apollo so far. I think it works really well together with Deb R17S-- RF8. Good speed and angles, gives a much quicker feeling than e.g. a Drake R19. As long as the water is not to rough it is no problem in winds of around 20 knots. In rough sea state I have also used R13S RF8 which is more forgiving. Boomheight and mastbase position is of course very important for finding the correct lift in the nose, so don't be afraid of changing these settings a lot as the wind picks up.
