50cm would be way too small, you need lift from the fin in order to sail the board correctly. A smaller sail is the way to go, a modern sail around 9m2 is fine up to about 20-24knots of wind, or even higher at your weight. You can go down to a 66-68cm fin but that's about it. Reaching will, and should, be a little uncomfortable as these boards are all about upwind and downwind angles.
