There are a number of different ways to hold it, depends on wind direction etc. To pick the board and sail up (from dry land), the board needs to be face up, hold the sail in a beach start position, bend legs to get under the sail (easy on formula because of high boom), get head on luff tube below boom and start lifting (let the wind do the work for you) and grab the back footstrap nearest to you. Its all sort of one quick smooth movement. Coming out of the water is easier as the board is already in the correct position. Its actually pretty easy once you'v tried it a few times, but much harder to put in words. Its kinda like a beach start I guess. Best thing is to just try it out
