Thanks for the info, I finally know for sure!
I'm curious though, has anyone seen how would the profile look in-flight under wind pressure? Wouldn't the sail be pushed back to the vertical rod making some kind of top-of-a-question_mark curve close to the leading edge. If so wouldn't it slow the kite down creating unnecessary turbulence?

As you can see the second and third pics show the sail not leaning on the vertical spar in this setup either. I'm sure wind will push them together but it would be a weird profile then too.
