    No it is not. Most Sport C drivers here in Region 11 are about that weight.

    Default Sport C driver weight

    With the minimum weight for the class at 675lbs. a 190lb. driver, 130lb engine,
    225lb boat, there would be 135lbs left for rigging, battery, gas tank ect.
    You would have to add weight.
    I would like to have that problem. I weight 230.

    There have been a lot of drivers around that weight. If you can get lighter, great! But, certainly not required. I would be selective on your boat choice. Maybe try to find something that is notorious for being lightweight.
    Some of the lighter sport c boats are:

    Mark Nelsons Red Boat (I hear that thing was like 60 or 75 lbs light)
    Gran Prix Non Capsule style boats
    RaceMasters: I had one that was really light.

    Hope this helps,
