When you're bringing fresh crew up on deck fairly frequently, as you suggest, you probably won't lose much (if any) by waiting for the third hand. You'll want to make sure the wind or course has actually changed enough to warrant the gybe. Of course, if you believe all the ad copy, the helmsman's supposed to be able to gybe an asym singlehanded.
