Make a very effective clothes dryer out of a five gallon paint/pickle bucket.
Many of the bucket have an inner lip which is exactly the same size as a standard wet/dry vac hose. You can of coucuse use this as a ready made guide...
I used a nylon screen material that I picked up in a fabric store.
Make sure that you create a vacuum. This will suck the water off of the garment.

If you want to dry boat sails the chamber could be a huge issue. That would require a large chamber and the larger the chamber the greater the forces acting upon it. The force equation tells us that the square inches multiplied by the air pressure yields the total pressure in the vessel. You would need a sturdy metal container and the consequences of the container implosion can be fatal injuries. But if you pump down to zero air and hold the vacuum there will be zero water in the container. Water simply can not exist in a vacuum and that is true for ice as well.
What may be an issue is a scratchy feeling to the dry clothing. If you hang a towel on a clothes line the wind tends to help get all the normal contaminants out of the wash. But if you have a clothes line strung up in a shower things like calcium carbonate in the water tend to stay with the fabric even though the water drips off as well as evaporates. Towels will not feel soft and will be scratchy. I suspect that vacuum drying would still require tumbling to be competitive.
