Hi Hernando,
You need "wait" commands to enforce ordered execution in a script.  I.e.

coordset #20 1,51; wait 50
turn y 90
coordset #20 1,51

... or if you're going to put more stuff after the second coordset, you'd want to put it there too.  I'd just do this

coordset #20 1,51; wait 50
turn y 90; wait
coordset #20 1,51; wait 50

See explanations of command files and "wait"

You could also wait longer after the turn, or turn gradually, if you don't want it to be so abrupt.

I hope this helps,
