grahama is on a distinguished road
I sail single handed so I just use the composite folding steps I had fitted to the mast for that very purpose. For convenience they are hard to beat, are always available, are lightweight, don't rattle or catch lines, and have effectively already paid for themselves.

If you need to hang around for a while - take your bosuns chair with a short clip line. Loop the line around the mast, over a higher step and clip back to the chair. Sit down and relax...
