Just turn the umbrella sideways. Good one for the thread Nautical Oddities.

Re: Could this be Converted to Sail?

I once raced a 16' whaler in Seattle's Duck Dodge, a weekly beercan race on Lk Union. I managed to finish in the middle of the 3rd start, of course they were on their 2nd lap and I was on my first.

With enough effort, anything can sail.
A house is but a boat so poorly built and so firmly run aground no one would think to try and refloat it.
