Matching a font to this graphic

Creating a logo for our sail race team and would like a font as close to this one as possible. Would actually like it in italics. Thanks,


It reminds me of Textile, AKA Lucida Big Casual:

Thanks Riccardo. Textile or Lucida Big Casual should do the trick. Also mentioned was Salsa, a Google web font. What do you think of that one?

Yes, Salsa seems to be the right one (with a modified |R|). But I would advise against giving it a fake-italic treatment.
