I think COLREGS is appropriate. If you're going to sail, it's your guiding light so to speak. Consider it another term they need to learn. At this level almost every term is obscure. If education is the point of the app, teaching them that COLREGS exists and should be something everyone should know should be part of the learning process. I'm not saying include the entire text, but a short explanation would be good.
For what it's worth (and that's not much), my opinion is that for the price of the app, it should be presented as if a professional, experienced sailor developed it even if it is for beginners. If you're presenting it only as something you threw together to help your father and here, you might like it too, it should be free.
I think your intentions are great.
