young sailing couple looking for a quick ride in Fiji!

I've got a surprise trip to Fiji planned for my wife at the end of a trip she already knows about. The only thing I love more than surprising my wife is her! So I have booked three nights at the secluded coconut grove (something very similar to our honeymoon) and it looks perfect for us. We are flying into Fiji via Nadi on Dec 16th and then headed to Taveuni for our romantic three nights. We are both aspiring cruisers with some coastal ocean experience, excellent maintenance skills but tons of determination--trust me that we will be shoving off and leaving a life of land on shore. The date has been set and the financial goals are being met.
So...My point? Yes, I have one. We would love to meet some people who are already doing what we want to do with our lives. Also, while trying to fill the cruising kitty I'd prefer not to waist money on very short, but expensive inter-island flights. Is there anyone out there that plans to be in Fiji during December who would like to meet two love struck future cruisers? A trip to or from Taveuni would be greatly appreciated! If so, please let me know. It would be so great to be able to get another little taste of the life that we have each been working 90 hrs a week to obtain. Besides, a meal cooked by someone else, great company and a bottle of rum belongs to whoever can help us out!
I forgot to mention, we are also great cooks and skilled in sail repair. Best of all, my wife is a great bartender with tiki drinks to die for!

I don't know about coconut grove but there are usually some cruisers hanging out at Musket Cove which is a short ferry ride from Nadi. But I think most cruisers are heading south to get away from tropical cyclones. Remember that Fiji has nice water but lots of coral close to the surface.
