I have no idea, but I will take some guesses.

Since COLREGS has "REGS" in it, I will guess it is regulations and not rules ?
What is the difference ? Hmm. I don't have any idea. Must be a legal difference of some kind!
What practical effect ? Must be some kind of a legal effect!
Probably one that means it is all your fault.
