Generally, I would guess that non swimmers are much less comfortable in the water in an emergency. Yes, staying afloat and moving your arms isn't that hard if you're in a pfd. But I'd guess that most non swimmers would be susceptible to panicking if they are unexpectedly in the water, especially if alone.
Don't do it. You owe it to yourself and your paddling partners to learn to swim. Go the the local YMCA. They'll have everything you need.
