then then wind from the side to rear are the ones that will require corrective strokes the most. Corrective strokes tend to be add ons to other strokes like a sweep or a stern draw though yes I myself sometimes to something closer to a bow pry. If these are done imperfectly they can be hard on the shoulder. Not all boats have skegs or rudders and not everyone prefers to use them most of the time. So as you point out there are ways to mitigate the problem but still they commonly happen.
