Compasses are not essential and don’t come standard but may be of use when you don’t have good visual reference points on the shore to assist in determining if the angle you are sailing differs as the breeze swings. This may lead you to tack over to a different side of the waterway so that you get a better angle of breeze, which may mean the difference in making it to a mark first for equally fast boats.
