Starwagon was designed to compete in the various races taking place in Bermuda and on Long Island Sound in 1938. Whiton had previously designed, collaborated on or owned several sixes, including Frieda, Cherokee, Indian Scout, Light Scout, and Erne. It was a big year for the USA sixes based out of Seawanhaka Corinthian Yacht Club, with competitions in the early season in Bermuda for the Prince of Wales Cup, the Astley-Cubitt Cup the Governor's Cup and the King Edward VII Challenge Cup (now known as the Bermuda Gold Cup). Selection trials for the defense of Seawanhaka International Challenge Cup, the Scandinavian Gold Cup and British-American team races began in late May of that year. Starwagon sailed in Bermuda and on Long Island Sound through the 1939 season and after WWII made her way to Lake Ontario through the 50's then to the Puget Sound in the 60's. Starwagon has been based variously in Sidney and in Vancouver for the past 15 years and is currently receiving the treatment in order for her to be ready for the 2017 ISMA World Championships in Vancouver, B.C.
