noun - Gulp and Go is the third rule of feeding when an open water swimmer quickly consumes fuel (e.g., gel pack) or hydration (e.g., water) received from his/her coach on the feeding pontoon, then immediately begin to swim again after the momentary feeding stop.

Feeding Sequence

Gulp and Go is part of a four-part sequence of feeding:

(a) Seek and Spot,
(b) Reach and Roll,
(c) Gulp and Go, and
(d) Toss and Turn

The swimmer came in and did a great ‘Gulp and Go’ despite being crowded at the feeding station.

Origin

Usage dating to circa 2001 from Steven Munatones in Huntington Beach, California.
