Pete Rainey saved Rockquest by finding sponsorship and turning it into a national event.

Now, 29 years later, they're still running it full-time out of Nelson.

Pete Rainey has a low boredom threshold. He has been a Nelson City Councillor for the past three terms, he sings in choirs and is a choral conductor, runs Nelson opera in the Park, and the NZ Antique and Classic Boatshow.

Pete loves restoring historic boats, cooking and the occasional motorbike tour. He also plays gypsy jazz violin and his mantra is: whatever you do, make sure it's done with enthusiasm.
