Depends what boat you are sailing really, but in my Musto, in 25+plus my routine would be:

1) OMG i have to gybe
2) ok, think... more speed
3) ease main out to corner of the rack
4) raise myself on the wire
5) slack out the new kite sheet (yes ok, too much over 25 and its in the chute still)
6) Speed
7) bear away, unhook from trapeze
8) move across boat
9) as boom twitches, tiller is centralized and all body weight on new wing - if not swimming
10) hook on sheet on, back onto the wire
11) foot loop and bring main back in for speed
12) ease out kite again and start giggling and screaming as boat takes off
