fWill Varnish stick to Epoxy?

I checked with the epoxy manufacturers and they recommended polyurethane but had no experience with varnish.I read about varnishing over epoxy on this website. Presumably for UV protection. Is any special prep needed other then a light sanding? I checked with the epoxy manufacturers and they recommended polyurethane but had no experience with varnish.

I epoxied the bottom a companionway hatch board that was starting to de-laminate, the rest of the hatch has 15 coats of Spar Varnish on it.

Thanks - Larry
