Really interesting...Looks like an SUL looking at how slow the boats are moving. Anybody knows what kites they are and if they are commercially available?

+1 on that statement.
Looks like somesort of real light wind kite. I was trying to make out the rods on the kites when they were grounded. They look really skinny. (skinnier then the usual standard rods like, idk, P300 or nitros.

Do the kites even have a name?

The kites are Blackbirds and yes, they are helping whatever wind they have along with the boat they are flying off of. I would think that would be claustrophobic flying off a boat like that, not being able to move at all.
