I'm not a racer, but I think it can be used to adjust the boom for racing. It's adjustable to let out so you can flatten the sail, not sure about lifting.
One good feature is that if you raise the main, bear off and still have the boom attached to the clip on the backstay, that can be embarrasing/difficult to deal with. With the topping lift, it's always up and out of the cockpit.
