Short of creating physical clouds to hold people aloft, Mattress Warehouse stocks almost every imaginable furnishing to help customers catch a few Z’s. Rows of name-brand mattresses from Sealy, Simmons Beautyrest, Serta, and Tempur-Pedic entice customers to replace their worn pad for new bedding, such as a standard mattress, a fluffy pillowtop unit, or a memory foam piece that conforms to bodies. Beyond mattresses, the warehouse also carries an ample collection of box springs, full bed sets with rails and headboards, and even premium futon mattresses that revitalize foldable couches.
Begun as a sailing club founded by cruising sailors, The Sailing Academy harnesses the wind to explore new destinations rather than for racing or other high-speed maneuvers. Seasoned instructors use an on-water coaching method, eschewing copious dry-land classroom time because they know that the best way for students to learn how to parallel park a yacht is by doing it. They helm beginner through advanced courses in general sailing and more specialized courses in coastal navigation, coastal cruising, and bareboat chartering. Aboard their fleet's vessels, which include a Catalina and a Jeanneau, they also take small groups out for charters in local waters. Their location on the bay south of Annapolis enables captains and students to sail free from the confines of crowded city harbors and maneuver more freely. Though the academy doesn't rent out its boats, students can charter a boat for a day, and club members earn regular vessel access.
