The dry person will feel the cold more because the wet person standing next to them will try and get warm until the water evaporates onto the next person but by the time it has reached the dry person it would have been cold. so the dry person would feel the cold more!

I think, the wet person will feel the cold more because water needs energy to evaporate and this energy is taken form the immediate surroundings ie the wet person, making the wet person feel cold. If you wet your finger and hold it up in the air it will feel cold because the heat to evaporate the water is coming from your finger.
