Going up the mast

I have a San Juan 28 and the fore deck light needs to be replaced and a bird bent my wind vain on top of the mast. I would like to go up or send a light friend up to fix these things but have very little experience. I was planning on using a climbing harness I have and tying to the main sail halyard. Then using a winch run someone up to replace the light and bend the wind vain back to straight. Any info about the best way to do this and a maximum weight I could send up would be greatly appreciated.
