Buying a forward rate

@sophie just a quick one as i'm a little confused here (don't think it's mentioned clearly anywhere in schweser)
when you are buying a 1-year forward rate of $1.5/gbp, are you:

1. securing the rate of $1.5/gbp in 1 year's time to sell gbp or buy gbp.
or
2. securing the rate of $1.5/gbp in 1 year's time to buy gbp with USD in hand.
