However, launching will be better not done single-handed since water levels are still high (59.7m at Britannia on May 7 2018 & 5:35pm EDT, 1.8m above datum) and the docks, though attached to the ramp, will remain of difficult access until the plates sitting on top of them can be installed reaching the end of the ramp:

The plan is to launch in duo (i.e., without docking at the ramp) this Saturday… Keep tuned!
