International Masters Rowing Regatta

Located in the valley of the Couze, about ten kilometers southwest of Brive-la-Gaillarde, in the heart of a peaceful and green natural environment, the lake of the Causse Corrézien extends over 84 hectares, at the foot of the villages of Chasteaux and Lissac-sur-Couze.


In the mid-1970s, this site was developed by the Syndicat du Causse Corrézien. The surface area of the lake is nearly 84 hectares of water; the first impoundment was carried out in the summer of 1976. This lake, situated in a green setting, is a place where it is good to come for a walk with family or friends.


Famous for its rowing competitions, this pleasant site is perfect for a relaxing break, a picnic or a sports outing. A nautical base, open all year round, allows you to practice sailing, rowing, canoeing, windsurfing, stand up paddle... In the summer, the lake also invites you to take a dip. Two sandy beaches, where swimming is supervised in July and August, welcome you for a refreshing and relaxing moment!

The offer of outdoor leisure activities is not limited to water activities: walkers will appreciate a 7 kilometer paved path around the lake. Introductory courses in Nordic walking are also offered, as well as supervised mountain bike outings, and climbing sessions on the surrounding cliffs.

The superb site of the Causse Corrézien lake had to have a sports support at the height of its natural values. In 1988, sailing and rowing united all the available energies through the creation of the C.S.N. Brive.


Over the years, the club has continued to structure and develop.


Our association has been able to diversify by creating, in addition to sailing and rowing, a canoe-kayak section, before promoting Handisport, Sport-health Rowing and a new activity, AviFit.


These different activities do not make it forget its primary values, especially in the school environment where its initiatives are unanimously recognized.

The CSNB also takes advantage of the unrivalled qualities of the Lac du Causse to become a player in the organization of various French and international rowing championships with the World Junior Rowing Championship in 2009 and soon the European Junior Rowing Championship. It has also been selected as an Olympic training site for the upcoming 2024 Olympic Games.
