I don't see how that makes a huge difference in deciding if you paddle alone. You would always wear a life jacket alone or single. If you go with a friend and don't wear a jacket, your friend gets to watch you drown. If you go alone and don't wear a jacket and drown, they get to read about you in the paper. Not a lot of great choices there.
So wear a life jacket and happy paddling. Choose your conditions to give you the best advantage. I saw a man drown last week with a life jacket and hundreds of safety crew everywhere. There are no guarantees in life except that we all shall die.
