Default How to size a WindSUP sail?

I just bought a 10' x 34" inflatable WindSUP w/daggerboard but didn't get the compact sail kit because of durability concerns. The shop I bought it from suggested a PowerGlide 4.7 sail, and I went along out of ignorance although I am 232 lbs. From what I've been reading this seems too small, especially for a board that is meant to be used in light winds. For now I will use this on a small reservoir that gets whitecap choppy at wind speeds about 15 mph.
Should I send this sail back? What would be a more appropriate size?

It's more about what the fittings on the inflatable WindSUP can handle than what a
big guy can learn to use.
