Default Reference on setups and sail sizes?

Thanks for providing this forum, it is great for a newcomer to learn from others.

I have an assortment of secondhand gear, and just got a GO 150. I use the GO with an older Stuart Bell 5.2 slalom sail, and in light winds on sheltered water have got up to the level of hooking on and feeling for the straps, and getting almost to the plane in moderate wind (my guess is around 10-12 kts). I weigh 75Kg.

Is there a reference chart that shows how to relate sail size for board, body weight and wind strength? I am trying to decide what size my next sail should be for sailing on the sea in stronger winds (eg to 18-20 kts).
