In November 1998 a group of sixteen men, including five disabled participants the candidates for the Greenland expedition carried out a weekly autonomous sailing along the river in the conditions, close to winter: snow and frost. A team was vigorously moving forward (40 km per day) along the route, which passed in absolute wilderness (with no populated localities).
