Question Hanging on to the uphaul rope when on plane

Hi,

I noticed some racers hold their uphaul lines (instead of the boom) with their front hand when on plane (to lean even more to the side I presume).
Is that a technique to stay on plane in extremely light wind or a way to get the maximum upwind angle?

Any other tips on when and how to use it?
