Achievement lounge.jpg The first Ephemerisle was held on October 2-4th, and located just SE of where Disappointment Slough (which extends to Paradise Point Marina) meets the main channel, as seen on this Google Map.

The event was sponsored & run by The Seasteading Institute, with central platforms built by Chicken John Rinaldi and his hard-working crew, who built a work boat and crane for the operation. The goal was to promote the cultural concept of seasteading - the construction of autonomous floating nation-states in a hands-on and accessible way.

The event amassed 9 houseboats and a community*built platform anchored to the shore. A variety of art projects were funded by TSI. The event attracted media attention and was the subject of a documentary by Stanford Film Master's student Jason Sussberg.12345.

Perhaps most importantly, it was successful enough to lead to community interest and growth in future years.
