Sitting on/Leaning/Pushing Boom - IOD Race

Hi everyone! I had the pleasure of crewing on an IOD yesterday. I'm a newbie so be patient with me. When downwind, the skipper had me "sit" on the boom, putting all my weight into it. Is this a common practice? What does it do? I saw others in the same class, some had crew doing this, others not. More to say about these boats in other posts!
