sip ‘n’ puff
 n.— «Quadriplegic sailors such as Kevin Penny can also navigate the boat independently. Penny uses two straws to control the boat (what’s known as “sip ‘n’ puff”). One steers, the other moves the sails in and out.» —“Disability doesn’t slow these sailors” by Virginia Insua Daily News (Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada) Aug. 26, 2007.
