Come up with a method that works for you and your crew and stick to it. It works.
I would also suggest that a checklist helps people who are less familiar either with sailing or with your boat not make any bonehead moves, and feel more involved in the day's sailing. When my wife and I went sailing a couple of weeks ago, I was reminded of how little she has had the opportunity to make the whole process -- casting off, tacking, docking, etc., -- second nature. We had a great day out, yet had I given her the well worn laminated checklist in the car as a reminder before we got to the slip, she would have been more comfortable in the beginning.
