Just to give you a run down on how the qualification for this years Olympics worked...

National Olympic Committees (NOCs) may enter 1 boat per event with the host nation directly qualifying one place in each event. The remaining places are decided through a qualification system.

Qualification is worked out on a national basis and it is then up to the individual National Olympic Committees to decide which sailors they want to represent them at the Olympic Sailing Competition. To be eligible for selection by NOCs the athlete must have appeared on an official ISAF World Ranking list between 1 January 2011 and 1 July 2012.

75% of each event's entry quota shall be qualified from the best ranked NOCs in each of the relevant events at the 2011 ISAF Sailing World Championships.

25% of each event's entry quota shall be qualified from each event's 2012 Worlds or other events sanctioned by ISAF, to finish by 1 June 2012.

So if they do the same for 2016, the chance to get to Rio will depend on if kiteracers rank in the 2015 Worlds or 2016 Worlds and it will allow only one male and one female from a nation to compete.

so like the other guy said, it comes down to money and time/travel constraints maybe?

You will need sponsorship and time to mount an olympic campaign, unless you are a trustafarian with nothing better to do.
