I note that some jib booms are bent upwards and the parts are available from sails etc. I am interested in the benefits. Is it a sail area benefit ?

In the case of a bent boom on a 6 metre it is to get the maximum sail area and get the jib as low to the deck as possible, with a jib very low down a straight boom would catch on the deck when goosewinged.
